I remind myself that it is more important to spend time with my lo than worry about the mess. If others don't like the mess, they don't have to look at it - or they can clean!

Oh, I forgot, any chance your lo is lactose intolerant? My lo screamed too in the beginning. Through trial and error, we realized that he was sensitive to dairy. Things got better when I switched to soymilk, almond milk, and other nondairy products.
thanks. her inability to suc is physical. super high palate and small lower jaw. she also has low muscle tone. she cant keep suction to actually transfer milk the OT said she doubts she will ever be able to nurse im pretty sure the screaming is the reflux. we have yet to find a medicine to work.
