Due to numerous complications, my 6 week old has been bottle/tube-fed (NG) since birth. She's latched on a few times but she's never really gotten anything from the breast as far as I've been able to tell.
I am hoping that she will be off the tube feedings in a month or so. I would really love to be able to nurse her, but I'm wondering if it will even be possible so long after birth?
I haven't been attempting to nurse her the past week or so because she has thrush, and I think we need help with our latch anyway. We're also dealing with a bit of oral aversion after a bad case of reflux which is slowly getting better.
Any tips? Resources?
(I've been pumping - supply is not an issue).
