Re: From pumping/bottle feeding to breas
Terrific advice from Susan, as usual. I would start with the IBCLC, and see what she says, and also consider seeing a pediatric otolaryngologist. I would want your baby's mouth checked very thoroughly for any physiological issue that might prevent a good latch and cause that "honking" noise. Regardless of what the result is, I just want to encourage you to keep on with nursing at the breast. the fact that your baby will latch on and nurse is an excellent sign- maybe right now she's too small to nurse successfully, but who knows what the future will bring?
Also, a big ol' to your pediatrician! "Just pump and bottle feed" is easy advice to give. But it sure isn't easy advice to follow!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
