After having some latching issues in the hospital due to my semi flat nipples (The nurse called them flat but LC and midwife said they weren't?) i was given a nipple shield. He latched right on and was an expert nurser. After 7 1/2 weeks of trying to get him to nurse with out the shield it just clicked 2 days ago.
The only issue is, his nursing sessions are much shorter. He also seems to be a bit more fussy but his diaper output is the same and his BMs are still mustard color. I'm sure he is getting enough and I'm just being paranoid because i can't actually see milk filling up the shield and it just seems too good to be true
I just thought someone might have a similar story to make me feel more at ease. Thanks!
