Congratulations on the impending arrival of your new baby!
I have a 7 year-old with DS and as a general rule, I try to approach everything with her the same way as I do my other daughter. I don't anticipate that things are automatically going to be different for her while being cognizant of the fact that things may go more slowly or need to be modified eventually. She latched on shortly after she was born although the nurses were sure to warn me that it probably wouldn't work. DS, or not, this is a baby's instinct! While her suck-swallow reflex was a little underdeveloped (she choked a occasionally), it all worked out. A little milk would leak from the corners of her mouth but nothing major. best of luck!
