Re: Failure to thrive

If you use the SNS, then use the smallest tubes so that she still has to work for the milk. Have you tried nursing her on the same side for a couple of feedings before switching to the other side? That will help her get more hindmilk. You say you are letting down easily - are you also letting down a few times per feed? If you are, then there is the possibility of overactive/forceful letdown which is known to cause weight problems because all the baby gets is foremilk!

I have lots of personal experience in FTT, feel free to PM me!
