Re: 6 weeks & struggling - poor latch, tongue tie *LONG*
The SNS has some advantages that other supplemental feeding methods don't- it keeps the baby on the breast, it helps baby associate the breast with food, it reduces of does away with the need for bottles. It's a useful tool,but not the only tool. Plenty of moms use bottles and plenty of moms introduce them early and everything works out just fine. Don't het too down- when we talk about the potential drawbacks of different ways of feeding your baby we're not saying anything is guaranteed to happen. We just want you to be informed about potential risks, because we have too many people come here with problems that would never have arisen if someone had given them complete information about risks and benefits.
