I am the mom of a 26weeker. When we were in the hospital the lactation consultant encouraged the use of a nipple shield to help her latch on. Now we've been home for a month and she is still only wanting to breast feed with the nipple shield. She has such a strong suck that my nipple is all the way to the end of the shield during feedings, and at times this is painful. Any advice for weaning her of this? I've been offering her my nipple during most feedings. I've tried at the start, right after let down and towards the end of the feeding and nothing has worked. I've heard about taking a bath together. Is this the best way? Please help.
