Helpppp! Im at the end of my rope here...
My son Is 10 weeks old and EBF, however...shortly after a bought of bilateral mastitis and Keflex antibiotics his latch declined and his sucking turned into chomping down. He will gag on a finger test and will not take a dummy, nipple shield, or bottle. I'm looking to get him on Bottles so I can pump and go out once in awhile but all he does is push it out with his tounge, gag, cry, and occasionally chomp down. I've tried spectra bottles, Avent natural, tommee tippee, mimijumi, dr browns, playtex, nubi, and munchkin latch to no avail...anyone else had this issue and figured it out? He's seeing an occupational therapist but not seeing any progress.
Edit: my son has also been diagnosed with severe acid reflux and is on nexium twice a day. He does not have a tounge tie or pyloric stenosis (sp?)
