Solace is off the nipple shield! All on her own, she knocked it off a few days ago and we havent looked back!

They did give me trouble about not wanting to giver her a bottle and almost told me I couldnt take her home till she had some for a few days, but then I said no and they told me that I would have to stay and nurse her 24/7 and sleep in the waiting room. At that point, I told them how ridiculous they were being, and started really complaining and I was offered a private room with her in order to be able to stay full time with her.

Since then she has done great! They told me that I could nurse her on demand, but no less than every three hours, and in two days she gained 3 oz. On the amount they were giving her, she was gained a half an ounce a day!

So we are now home and about to go to our first doctors appointment to monitor her weight!
