    Default He nursed!

    For about 5 min while sleeping. I got him to latch with the nipple shield. Then we nursed about 3 min with him awake, no nipple shield! He's biting me though becuase of the milk coming out.

    We nursed again, laying down for another 5 min with no nipple shield.

    YAY!

    Thank you everyone!!!

    He nursed again... For about 3-5 min... This time straight through, no pulling off or biting. I fed him his bottle and tried after 3 oz to latch him but he wasn't full enough to want to work with me. So he to another oz and then I knocked the bottle out with the nipple and put mine in (via nipple shield). He latched right on and sucked! Then he pulled off for a moment so I popped the NS off and latched him back on and he nursed and swallowed for about 4 min or so! Then he played around and just kept popping on and off and sucking a few times.

    YAY! I hope this isn't a fluke!!! I'm going to keep offering the breast every moment I can...
