Re: Baby won't always latch when he does won't suck long
Have you been using the syringe since the very beginning? If so, it's possible that baby already expects that feeding method to be part of his nursing experience. You don't need to suck in order to be fed by syringe, and he may already know that.
One technique that could be helpful to you is to express some milk onto the surface of the nipple before latching baby on. If he gets the taste of milk in his mouth, he may be stimulated to suckle and generate a good letdown.
