Re: Me again- do babies latch after this long?
My boy, born at 34 wks, didnt latch for six weeks. We discovered he had a tongue tie in addition to everything else. The occupational therapist was a huge help, giving us exercises to increase his sucking power. Could you see one of those? And how about a postpartum doula to help around the house while you get some sleep? These things might help even if you supplement. And yes, remember, it doesnt have to be all bfing or none. Hugs

Proud that I grew 26 lbs of baby before solids, and still counting...
We received banked milk in the NICU. Thank you, donors!!!
