All over the world there exists in every society a small group of women who feel themselves strongly attracted to giving care to other women during pregnancy and childbirth. Failure to make use of this group of highly motivated people is regrettable and a sin against the principle of subsidiary. ~ Dr. Kloosterman, Chief of OB/GYN, Univ. of Amsterdam, Holland
Shiloh (5/6/06) Nursed for 13 months and Josephine (7/26/08) Nursed for 23.5 mos Currently nursing my new little firecracker, Finley Catherine, born on the 4th of July!!
I am sure this sounds stupid because she is so young - but did you try a straw? I know some LOs cotton on to them when they are REALLY young.
proud but exhausted working mammy to two high needs babies
- my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
- the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.
If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.
Family beds are awesome
