Thread: Sucking but not Swallowing

    Default Sucking but not Swallowing

    My daughter was 5 weeks premature, she is now 5 weeks old (0mos corrected). I've been trying so hard to nurse for 3 weeks now with no success. I went to a lactation consultant hoping for some advice, but to no avail, no helpful advice.
    My daughter has a pretty good latch but will not swallow the milk she just lets it dribble out of her mouth from all sides. Her weight gain is great because she is mainly taking breastmilk in a bottle.
    how do i get her to swallow?

    Does she having any trouble swallowing the milk from the bottle?
