Hi everyone, sorry not been on more things have been pretty hectic!
So post placenta previa, c section, readmission to hospital Isaac is now 12 weeks and amazing!
I just wanted to reassure people about Breastfeeding. I breast fed my previous 2 children but Isaac was a different kettle of fish!
Whilst growing in me he devloped a habit of sucking his tongue to the roof of his mouth. This stopped him from latching on properly so we were readmitted at 2 days old as he'd lost too much weight.
The nursery nurses on the ward were amazing and I ended up feeding him using a nipple shield as it kept his tongue down.
Once home I kept getting told that I need to get rid of the shields, it'll effect my milk supply, he won't feed properly etc etc.
Well here I am 12 weeks later, Isaac is still Breastfeeding using the shields as he won't/can't feed without. He is gaining weight beautifully and sleeping through the night! My milk supply is abundant!
So my story is do what is right for you and your baby and it'll always work!
