    Two steps forward, one step back, and keep on going;)

    An SNS is not that bad. I did one for a while. Tape the tubes down very well so littlefingerscant get to it and pull it up. Use a Lact-Aid as you can even nurse with it laying down. because I agree...

    Yes, they can have good days and bad days, and the idea is to keep working on it.

  10. Re: 6 weeks & struggling - poor latch, tongue tie *LONG*

    Just keep going. I HAD to EP. My baby could not nurse. There was virtually no hope for it. I tried everything to get him to nurse. I was incredibly sad. I cried for months, and i was crying about it...

    Either hospital grade pump is fine. And make sure your horns are the right size. Pump every 2 hours. Yes, this is a drag. But when a mom is essentially relying on a pump to maintain a milk supply you...

    Be back later when I can write. Don't give up. Don't plan to EP.
