I'm breastfeeding my twins who are almost 12 weeks. Due to latch issues, I pumped almost exclusively for the first 6 weeks. At that point we transitioned to feeding exclusively at the breast. However, that is with shields. They transferred milk a lot better that way so our IBCLC who is also our pediatrician recommended them. She said I could wean my daughter by starting a feeding with the shield, taking it off and then finishing the feeding. She freaks out and constantly unlatches. Any advice? Is she just not ready? My son still has a tongue thrust so I know he's not ready. I am so ready to ditch the shields!
