Hi! I just had my second little girl 5 days ago. She hasn't nursed yet. I've been pumping and feeding her bottles. My supply and anatomy are not the problem. She bites and doesn't move her tongue forward to suck. I saw the LC in the hospital and was told to do finger sucking, worked on proper bottle latch and we figured she'd get it once my milk came in. Well, now my milk is IN (I get 6oz every 2 hrs!!), and she still hasn't figured it out. I can leak milk in her mouth, but she seems less and less interested in even trying. She just bites the bottle too but that is enough to get milk out. I would love hints, advice, anything. I just want her to breastfeed- pumping sucks. Should I bite the bullet and pay $65 to go to an LC? I'm doubtful that they can do much, really- you can't explain and draw diagrams to a 1 week old.
Oh, and she is not tongue tied. We thought she might be, but she isn't.
