At one point we were using a feeding tube attached to a syringe, under a nipple shield, so that DD thought she was getting milk from me. It was awful!! And I hated every single minute of it. I never enjoyed my nursing relationship.

Fortunately I pumped for 3 months and gave DD breastmilk through a bottle. Without that pump though I would have moved straight to formula.
