Glad someone told me about the cabbage leaves before I sent DH out to buy some! I don't use a pacifier. I was syringe feeding before, but it seemed like he was just getting used to having the milk squirted into his mouth with absolutely no effort on his part.

I really don't want to have his tongue tie clipped. I have a thing about causing him pain. he can stick his tongue out, my LC didn't think it's severe enough to prevent him from being able to breastfeed effectively.
