My DD nursed with the nipple shield exclusively for the first 7 weeks. Yesterday I randomly tried nursing her without it and she latched right on! I was very excited. We haven't used it again since. However, since we stopped using it she doesn't seem to be getting as full and is wanting to nurse more often. She also isn't sleeping as well. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Should I start using the shield again? Will this work itself out soon? I'm just not sure what to do an an getting very discouraged. Any advice is welcomed.
