We are OK, she is 4lbs now, she had a setback due to infection which has been hard but hopefully she's on the mend now. I'm tired from the constant expressing but I know its totally worth it.

Yay for 4#!  Is she able to latch at all? Hope she's better soon :)

She sometimes latches, on a good day she did 10 mins which was amazing, but other times she fusses and won't latch - I think this happens when we attempt to latch when she's already feeling too hungry and wants instant gratification.mI'm at a bit of a loss, was thinking about trying nipple shields?

Sienna, that's probably what's happening. I'd consult the hospital lc next time you nurse her or see if a lll leader is welcome there. Nipple shields can cause more problems according to the lll. They inhibit nerve in the breast causing let down problems and less milk release. Then, you have to wean baby from those to breast. Better to get the lc/lll there so they can personally see what's going on before trying anything artificial, and maybe do what Thebyer did avoiding bottles. It will work out momma.

I really hope so, its hard at the moment xx when she's feeling better I will definitely look into seeing a lll advisor.
