Re: **Need help and advice**
Hi, just want to quickly add that, if by "nipple issues" you mean inverted or flat nipples, you can still nurse. I swear I have the worst nursing nips on the planet and we were able to get it eventually -- though it took ongoing work with three different LCs to get it right! We were also struggling with bottle preference. We used the "RAM" technique ultimately (rapid arm movement), along with " nipple sandwich" and every possible hold. Do get some hands on help. In fact, get lots of it!
