Re: is it impossible?
I just answered in the other thread. It is NOT impossible. When my son got his tongue clipped the LC told me the same thing. Ditch the bottles and just breast feed. I had a 4 year old as well and just didn't have the same time I did with her to try. So I didn't do it immediately but at 3 weeks old something in him clicked and he got it. Once he latched I was able to ditch the bottles and give it that kind of dedicated try. But until then it was just torture on all of us. Keep pumping though. You want to be sure that your supply stays up.
My daughter was born at 33 weeks and she didn't latch at all until her due date and then it took another 3 months to get it right. It's so possible. Stick around this forum and take lots of deep breaths. But you can do it!
