Hi. I am new here and need a little help. My darling Daughter is now 5 weeks old and is doing very well on BF. It was a roughtroad for the first couple of weeks(jaundice) and she dropped a pound from the time she left the hospital but, last week I am happy to say that she gained 9 ounces. She was 9.4 when she was born and is now 9.7
My question is this. I have been using a nipple shield with her since week one. The LC suggested it and it has been working just fine actually great. It is a little annoying to have to always remember it when we go out. Is there any reason that I shouldn't be using it and be trying to get her to go without it. She is getting good milk flow with it on and it really doesn't bother me either way.
Any advice either way would be great. Thanks in advance
