This was the problem we had. At the hospital, it was like pulling teeth to get Eliana to nurse, but eventually she would.

Once we were home, it was another matter. She would latch on, but wouldn't suck. She became dehydrated and we took her to the hospital. She was in the NICU for five days being fed pumped breastmilk and formula.

After receiving a bottle, I have never had trouble getting her to eat again. It's like she was a different child.
