My son is 8 weeks old and we have had a series of issues from the beginning starting with a week in the ICU, my flat nipples, a posterior tongue tie, then thrush. All these things are behind us now, but he is still finger feeding, has been now for about 6 weeks (we had about a week on the breast with a nipple shield after the ICU but he wasn't gaining and was crying from hunger all the time even though I was nursing every hour)
Has anyone out there transitioned back to the breast at this age or later? I am so sad and want him at the breast so much, and I need encouragement to know this happens for babies and moms at ages later than this.
He is doing almost everything but latch, he finger feeds calmly right at the breast, will lick the nipple and mouth it, but cries or struggles when he tries to latch.
