My wife wants nothing more than to be the best possible Mommy she can be but we are having some serious issues. First of all, our little guy is a biter and just chomps at the breast. He is 2 weeks old and has always had problems with latching on. All of the LC have given us is headaches with about 4,000 different theories and remedies. Believe me we are all too well informed about the issue of Nipple confusion but isn't nutrition more important than nipple confusions? My hope is that there is someone out there that has encountered such issues who can tell us what they did to remedy the situation. It has gotten to the point where BF has taken the joy of this experience away from my wife who is a first time mother. This is all she has dreamed about and now feels like a failure because no matter how hard she tried nothing is working. Our baby lost 9% in the Hospital and on two weeks was 5-6 ounces short of his birth weight. We are stressed and anything anyone can do to shed light on this would be greatly appreciated. We have given pumped milk to the baby as the MD suggested and now she feels he has nipple confusion and will never get the hang of it. We are debating whether to just pump and feed for 8 months. Please help.
