Re: Newborn wont suck!
Yes you can nurse. BUT some she is not stimulating your breast correctly you need to pump!! Get a hospital grade pump and pump day and night. Find an IBCLC stat I would try the SNS again and do lots of skin to skin. Don't skip night feeding

I've tried SNS once and she remained lazy in the mouth so she mostly let it leak out.
Yesterday she took the breast for only 1 minute. Can someone be brutally honest and let me know if nursing will even be possible? I have HUGE supply issues and my milk hasn't even come in yet (5 days post partum) but I have enough colostrum. Ugh. I don't know.
