    A few days ago my colostrum stopped coming, I had been pumping colostrum cause my newborn would latch onto my breast but would fall asleep and let go or would latch and get fussy cause there was nothing to eat. I even tried nipple shields which made the situation worse. So we decided formula should be supplemented. Formula is working just fine, baby has no problems with it. I'm the one having problems. I know he is getting the food his needs but I feel awful that I can't be the kind of woman that can supply her child with breast milk. And now with colostrum not coming ( I pumped twice for 20 minutes and not a single drop) I'm not sure what my breasts should feel like. They are quite soft, no lumps, nor there is there any pain. I need advice, please help.
