An SNS SAVED us with DD1. It's a little tube that you attach to your nipple and the other end goes into a bag of pumped BM/formula. That way not only are they practicing proper latch, etc., but your LO is stimulating you to make more milk.

You can also try finger feeding if he gets really frustrated; you can find some great directions online or videos on YouTube. Cup feeding is another option while you're helping him relearn; those can be good ways to get enough in him to ease his frustration before working on latch.

Married to my best friend since 10/04, Mommy to DD1 since 10/08 and DD2 6/11
