  5. Re: Desperate! Need help with newborn!

    A long shot but could the silicone nipple shields be the problem? He suckles while asleep but the milk just runs out of his mouth, ending up in soaked bib. He doesn't seem to swallow, even when...
  6. Re: Desperate! Need help with newborn!

  12. Re: Desperate! Need help with newborn!
