My LO is 10 days old and the pediatrician said that she could start being weaned off the nipple shield. It was needed not for my sake, but hers. She was having problems with latching and sucking. But now she is feeding well and I would like to wean her off of it.
My LO is mostly passive aggressive and simple presses her lips together and refuses to eat when the shield is off, or she latches but won't suck. I have had some success trying removing it after she initially latches, or getting to go without on the second breast.
I realize it will mostly be a slow process, but wondering if anyone has had anything that really worked and led to sucess or any tips for me. TIA.
