My baby was born at 37w 4d and had difficulty latching. My LC told me to pump and feed and once we got closer to her due date she may get better at latching. She went from 5lb6oz when we left the hospital to 7lb1oz at her 2 week check up!
I pump every 3 hrs and try to get her to latch once or twice/day as recommended by the LC. She usually just falls asleep or sucks without swallowing. Well she is 2 weeks 3 days today- it's her due date. I'm pretty sure we just had a successful latching because I could hear her swallow from time to time. She was on for about 45 min total b/w the 2 boobs.
Should I still give her the pumped bottles at every other feeding? I'm afraid to switch to EBF and have her drop in weight.... I'm pumping the excess now and getting quite a bit. She seemed satisfied though and is sleeping now...
Anyone have experience with this?
All advice is greatly appreciated!
