    I'm just amazed that after four months a baby can still know to search for the breast. Amazing. I would try the nipple shield. It can't hurt. GL!!!

    Sometimes, a Palatal Obturator can work well to help a newborns with cleft palates. What does your LC or doc feel about one of these?

    take care,
    I am going to push for the obturator. We will see. Its hard because our plastic surgeon is 2 hours away and technically we do not have an appt until she is 8 months. But like I said, I will push the issue. Our ped said to try anyway. I do have an LC, but she has not gotten back to me with her thoughts as I have told her to take her time since we are not oral feeding for a while. I have decided to pick up a shield after her heart procedure.
    pumping sucks
    But I'm EPing for my baby girl!
