My baby was born at 5 lbs 13 ounces. Was EBF and was up to 7 lbs 3 ounces at her 1 month check up. The pediatrician was very pleased. I started using a nipple shield to save our BF relationship and let my nipples heal from their huge fissures from tongue and upper lip tie. Which I believe has lead to my current problem. My baby won't latch more than a minute or two without the shield. I'm talking frantic awful crying. She even went on a nursing strike after trying a few days to get her to latch without the shield. At her 2 month checkup she weighed 8 lbs 2 ounces and her pedi was very concerned and advised to supplement with formula after each feeding. She won't take the formula though! I've tried putting an SNS tube under the shield, bottles, syringe, cup, finger feeding, before feeding, after feeding, during feeding. She hates it. The LC is at a loss. I've been pumping to try to increase my supply and it takes a few sessions to get 3 ounces to give her a "full feeding", she will take BM from a bottle so it is genuinely the formula that she doesn't like. I'm eating steel cut oats, drinking water and I've just ordered fenugreek which should be arriving tomorrow. Does anyone have any ideas for what I should do in the meantime while waiting for supply to increase? It is breaking my heart that I'm starving her.
