Re: Weak Suck, pumping and bottle feeding :(
Doctors actually say that babies can gain weight too quickly?
Anyway, how long ago was his TT corrected?
Because my little guy had a TT that we corrected last week. He's 3 weeks and a couple days old now and it's taken him up until yesterday to actually be able to pull milk from my breast.
My IBCLC said that because of his weight issues (mine had weight issues, too!!!!! took 2 weeks to get back up to birth weight because of the VERY same reason as you) he was behind the power curve, to bottle feed him, and wait it out.
I did, and bam. His tongue now moves milk.
I also was pumping every 2-3 hours. It bites, but it's worth it.
