DD is 8 weeks old and since birth we have had to use a nipple shield. She has a posterior tongue tie and lip tie that only 1 person can take care of and they are 4 hours away. DH and I aren't sure we want to go that route yet. I was using the shield but at her 2 week appt she had lost a pound from her birth weight and we could tell she wasn't being satisfied from me. I started pumping and nursing and using a SNS. It took forever for her to eat at breast and then I had to pump so eventually I gave in and just pumped and fed her via bottle. I did once a day still use the SNS though. My supply is great. I pump almost twice as much as she needs (41oz). But I want to try to get back to just BFing with occasional pumping. Today I used the sns and she took about 1 oz from it, I let her nurse for about 20 minutes before I hooked it up, then she fell asleep and seemed satisfied. But then I pumped and was able to get the same 3 ounces I normally get. I am almost ready to give up on nursing because pumping and bottle feeding is just easier but I know if I could get it to work bfing would be easier. I had read that at 8 weeks the latch gets better because they are bigger but this doesn't seem to be our case. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks ladies.
