OK, i posted about my friend who had flat nipples. Gave her all your suggestions and links to kellymom. Baby had jaundice, was born the 14th i think. She ended up pumping and using a syringe, then bought a nipple shield, which she said took care of baby not latching. Now she is still pumping, offering breast first but after every feeding giving the milk she pumped too. Because doctor said babies weight was too low. Shes pumping to relieve engorgement. Does this all sound ok? Is it ok shes using a breast shield and not shells? baby was 6.6 at birth dropped 6% in hospitalthen was at 12% drop on wednesday. They didnt get the nipple shield and correct the problem until wednesday.I am trying to help her but im afraid the pumping and bottles are a problem and im not sure what the weight gain should look like. Please help me help her!
