I have tried not using the shield but she just completely refuses my breast

My daughter is 10 wks old. She has been breastfed with a shield since birth. I think my milk is drying up. How do I know if this is happening and how can I stop it? I have tried not using the shield but she just completely refuses my breast.
What can I do?

Answer: Hi, It might be best to direct your feeding question to your Early Childhood Health Centre, or local Breastfeeding Clinic, where they can give you specialised, practical advice. Best wishes, Alex
