I do not have nipples, how to feed the baby?

Q: I got a baby boy by Caesarean section 4 months back in India. Now I am in Saudi Arabia. I was having milk for few days after the delivery. Unfortunately I do not have nipples, due to this my son can't suck, then we started feeding Lactodex LBW on doctors' advise and now I am not getting milk anymore. I got a milk here called Mammaplus, from which I am getting milk, but I have pain as the baby is not sucking so I stopped drinking it. Is there anyway to have nipples so that I can feed my baby?

A:You can try using a nipple sheath or sheild over your nipples and try feed your child through it. If it works you shall be able to feed your baby. Give it a try.
