Hey, I need latch help, and I don't know what to try.
What do I do for a 3-month-old who has never nursed at the breast or eaten orally (due to medical reasons), can't suck due to a large cleft palate, but loves her NUK pacificer (is very, very attached to it as she has had it throughout several surgerical recoveries) and can't figure out how to latch at the breast (and in fact never has). She is 3 months, and we are starting oral feeding for the first time this week -- I really want her to learn to latch so we can try a supplemental nurser thing -- that way when she finally has her palate repaired I can stop EPing!
Any tips will be great and much appreciated. Thank you!!!
