Re: Newborn wont suck!

Absolutely! It's quite possible that her feeding has been disrupted by an early birth. Sometimes 1-2 weeks can make a huge difference in maturity. My 25 weeker learned to breastfeed, after 6 months of a weak suck, and bottle feeding. I would definitely pump if your not already doing that. Give her some time, and she hopefully she gets stronger everyday! Good luck!
