    Re: Really scared! I'm a newbie!

    I went again today to feed him. I got pretty discouraged though. :( He would latch fine and then still had problems sucking. We tried for 30 minutes with barely any success. I even tried pumping...

    Re: Really scared! I'm a newbie!

    Do you still give him a bottle at all? Because when I go back to work he'll have to have a bottle part of the time. I just don't want more confusion. The LC says he has a GREAT latch. The first time...
