    Default hello

    i know that most of you ladies probably have very little infants, but my son is a little older. my son is learning to relatch at three months. he was bottle fed for most of his life due to meds i had to take. well long story short i am now trying to relactate and was hoping somone could share some tips on getting a baby to latch. i need to use a nipple shield due to inverted nipples and nipple confusion and what not. i would like to be able to nurse in bed but dont know if that will work due to the shield. also chase seems to get really anxious when i am preparing the nipple shield so he wont latch on to it. then he gets anxious after one or two sucks of not getting anything. i just got a sns so that should help a little also i have moved him from a size two nipple back to a size one so that he will get used to sucking a little harder to get the milk out. i will also post this in the relactation board but thought maybe you could tell me some techniques for getting baby to latch. thanks so much
