I was asked to supplement at my son's 2 month appt. We're using an SNS, which I'd used a couple of times before during my son's first weeks. Trouble is (and I noticed this with the earlier uses, too) our nursing sessions following the use of an SNS are awful. DS won't suck long, gets frustrated quickly, and we both end up in tears. Has anybody else had issues with this? Any suggestions?
I don't unclip the SNS tube until he's been on the second breast for a good 10 mins and his sucking pattern has slowed. I feel like he's not removing as much milk the next session after we've used the SNS, which is bad news considering I'm already supplementing (my thread Discouraged explains the whole situation).
Sorry for all the posts on this. I'm just frustrated and unsure, and worried that my time BFing my son is coming to an all-too-early end, just like it did with my DD.
I'll be calling my ped and the LC we've been working with tomorrow, as soon as I get my phone working.
