Down wit' the LC

So the babes had some issues with getting her suck on at first so we went in to kick it wit' the LC (lactation consultant) who hooked us up with the nipple shield. Now this little piece of plastic has saved our lives, so I don't mean any disrespect to the nipple shield , but I must admit that it offends my inner hippie to have to use an implement to get my kid to feed.

So, we went back to the LC to try to get her back to the sweet teat, but to no avail. She wants that damned shield. Oh well, I guess as long as she's eating and it's breastmilk right? I will say that the only apparatus that I won't give up for my inner hippie is this. I never knew how important it was to get my tootsies lifted to get the pillow situated just right. Oh, did I mention that we have made it 4 weeks with only breastmilk? Hurray!!

A girlfriend of mine used a nipple shield until three or four months. One day we were at the mall and she was like, shoot, we better go home cause i'm out of bottled milk. I was like, but your boob is right there! Alas she had no nipple shield. Long story short, he took the boob. So maybe in a few more months, your babe will too!
