Hi! I'm wondering if any of you have experience dealing with inducing lactation and using a SNS for a baby born with a cleft palate.
I am working with an agency and they just asked us if we would be open to a particular situation where the sonogram showed that the baby may be born with a cleft palate. The baby is due Sept 6th...and I'm still working so I probably won't start prepping with a pump until about a month to 6 weeks before the baby is due.
I was hoping to induce lactation, this is my first baby so I don't have prior experience breastfeeding, and my doctor (and I) don't want to use meds to induce lactation. Am I crazy for signing up for a situation where it is already going to be really difficult and then add the cleft palate situation???
