So I have flat nipples and LO will still not latch correctly. I have a nipple shield which once and a while I might use because right now I have a very tender, shredded nipple, but I was wondering because I hear mix reviews what you ladies who have used it before feel about it? Is it worth it to use it or try to grin and bear the pain while LO learns to latch?
Second question unrelated to first: My DS up until a few days ago slept in his bassinet at night for hours at a time at night, but now he won't sleep in it. My DH just went back to work and I'm at a loss! I've been barely getting two hours at night to sleep and have a toddler so catching a nap during the day is almost impossible. The only change is that he's been eating off one breast each feeding, but has been satisfied and refusing the other breast almost every single time I offer it. He still eats every 2-3 hours during the day, but now won't sleep without us holding him.
