2.10. Causes of poor attachment. Use of a feeding bottle before breastfeeding is well established can cause poor attachment, because the mechanism of suckling with a bottle is different. Functional difficulties such as flat and inverted nipples, or a very small or weak infant, are also causes of poor attachment (Colin, 2002) Yet mothers are more likely to blame themselves for lactation failure, rather than the hospital system that may have contributed to it. Primary organic causes for lactation failure are rare. The most common reasons for early abandonment of breastfeeding are: Perceived insufficient milk production

Sometimes, the cause is obvious, but often it is not Ineffective positioning and attachment will not only cause painful feeding, but will also result in the baby not taking enough breastmilk, which in turn will result in a baby who is unsettled after feeds.

Often it's not. But it's important to recognize the signs that a baby can't effectively remove milk during breastfeeding. Then the baby's healthcare provider can ensure there are no health or mechanical issues affecting feeding. And steps can be taken to fix the problem.
