I was just wondering if there are other moms out there who are going through what my baby and I are right now. She's three weeks old, and has never latched on. The first week, she got really jaundiced, and lost almost a pound and we had to start supplementing with formula because my milk hadn't come in yet. Now I am pumping and we are almost completely off the formula because my milk supply has gone up, but she still won't latch at all!
We are seeing lactation specialists, and they are really supportive and helpful (they helped get her weight, and my milk supply up), but I could use a little encouragement from people who have been there and seen the light at the end of the tunnel. I don't want to pump forever, I want to nurse!
