I'm having trouble trying to use a lact-aid. I have to use nipple shields otherwise bubba won't latch on. So we manage to get him latched on, (not easy with a shield) probably not quite right so I need to correct that, and then I try and wriggle the little tube into the side of his mouth. Usually by the time I get the tube in he's frustrated and lets go, or I can't get it in far enough so he gets no milk, or he's biting me trying to squeeze something out! I'm thinking about not using it and encouraging him to comfort suck when he's not hungry, but I know it would be better to have him sucking as much as possible to encourage milk.
Also, does anyone know if I can take herbs on top of taking domperidone? Which ones are the best?
