Re: Large Nipples :(
with the PPs. I strongly suggest seeing an IBCLC for some hands-on help! A good LC can help you figure out if there really is a problem and not just a fussy baby and a poorly calibrated scale, and if there is a problem she can help you correct it.
And do continue to nurse your baby, even if you must supplement (which you might want to do at the breast, using a supplemental nursing system or Lact-aid). If your baby really is having trouble getting a deep latch and transferring milk because you have mile-long nipples, that problem will almost assuredly go away with time as the baby's mouth grows. And as long as she still knows how to latch on and suck, she'll be able to transition to nursing with no supplementing. But if you take her completely off the breast, there's a very good chance that she will forget how to nurse, and you'll be stuck pumping (which as the PP said is a zillion times harder than nursing).
Can you tell us how nursing feels? Are you in pain when you nurse? Does your nipple come out of baby's mouth looking symmetrical/cylindrical, like a pencil eraser, or asymmetrical/creased/wedged, like a new lipstick? How often does baby nurse, and is she jaundiced or sleepy at the breast?
