I am helping my friend learn to breastfeed. Bless her heart, the baby was not latching right and she had terrible bruses and bleeding nipples by day 5 (when I found out). They had started supplementing formula. I encouraged her to pump every two hours after trying to nurse and to supplement only her breastmilk. She was able to pump 3 oz every two hours!
Anyway, Saturday the baby latched with a nipple sheild and has had no more bottles since!
Next step... How does she get rid of the nipple shields?
