Re: Nipple Shield
That was me who suggested ditching the bottles! I should have thought of the nipple shield- it's a really good tool when the baby is unwilling to latch but able to latch well when she does. Decreased supply is a concern, because the shield can slow milk transfer and reduce stimulation to the breast. But that's well worth the price of getting the baby on the breast! Just watch her diaper output, and be prepared to throw in some pumping if it starts to dip too low.
Great move to try the shield!
