Thank you for all your inputs dear. I forgot to mention, i have short nipples not exactly flat. I was asked to use nipple shield & eventually wanted to get rid of it once my lil one is able to latch & nurse comfortably. She is 6weeks, hardly latches on to the shield, with so much crying she is given bottle everytime. She already has developed bottle preference & i am so upset with everything. I just feel like giving up.
