Re: Looking to vent and get some support
I am awfully late to this party but my life is insane. I hope you come back to read this. DJ's mom is right. My daughter was 7 weeks early and it took me over 2 months to get her to even latch once and another 3 months to get it right. It was not easy and it honestly didn't take anything more than persistence, tears and desperation to get her to the breast. I refused to give up and after awhile I refused to give her bottles. I didn't care what they said about her weight, because she was growing and I knew that's what mattered. The best advice I got was from my pediatrician who was also my lactation consultant. Give her until her due date to even give it a true try. Because she wasn't meant to be born yet and her parts don't match mine. According to this, you hadn't met that milestone yet. I hope at this point you've gotten him to latch a bit and haven't given up. Please feel free to reach out.
