i kind of gave up on LC until we got her sucking issues looked at. the feeding specialists at the childrens hospital are more worried about the reflux and aspirating than weak suck. we have the Speech abd occupational therapists coming friday so maybe they will have some ideas obviously she does need to learn to suck, right? i have a sns but we stopped using it when we switched over to the bottles to get her to gain weight. even with it dripping/pouring into her mouth so she didnt have to suck she was making weird clicking noises and screaming, but maybe that was the reflux???? idk
