    YAY!! That's great Kelly! and if you were able to squeeze a drop, I'm betting that babes got more than a drop

    Hey Mommal....I have found the lactation aid to be much easier actually ) But both takes a little practice. And your right.. babes has now started to realize there is a tube in his mouth and is not suckling at the breast as well. They are smartie pants these little guys )

    Im feeding with bottle now most feedings but still pumping and latching throughout the day.

    hi Ive tried the lactation aid as well and find it difficult to use. Additionally, babes seems to have "found" the tube and likes to suck on it lol. We are latching at every feed now and there is definately milk just not sure how much. He does still take a bottle and most of the time a full one after nursing for awhile. He is gaining weight really well also. My next step is to rent a scale and go exclusive nursing for 24 hrs and weigh him b4 and after feeds and see how his overall weight gain or loss is in a 24 hr period. I will update you ladies when that happens.

    Thanks again for everyone's support!
