  1. Hi and thanks for posting us at Medimetry.There can be many causes of inadequate sucking at breast.Prematurity,low birth weight,asphyxia,any illness,inadequate breast milk are few common causes.You need to keep trying so that baby sucks.Wake him up by slight tickling on soles of baby.Adopt proper position while breastfeeding so that baby latches with your nipple and areola in his mouth.Ensure you have adequate milk supply.If still baby is unable to suck or is not sucking get him examined.I sincerely hope this information helps you.Best wishes and luck!
