I have 7 month old twins. All was fine when I had them. I got super engorged and the doctor wanted me to supplement since the babies were not latching good and losing weight. I had lots of milk but they were just not suckling that great. Since I didn't want to have nipple confusion, I went on the SNS (like the Lact-Aid). I followed Madela's directions that eventually the babies would wean themselves off of it. Well, that never happened. They are now hooked on the tube and will not get off! They would nurse when they were younger without it. How I wish I would have just gotten them off! Now I can't. I have switched to the Lact-Aid because now they require so much milk. It was a lot having to re-fill the bottle to satisfy the babies. I wish I had knew about Dr. Newman's advice in how to use the Lact-Aid. I think we wouldn't be in this mess. My supply took a dive as a result of all of this. I do think though that I must have a good amount of milk that is going out though. I haven't started my period yet. Don't you think that is a good sign? Anyone know how to get the babies off of the tube? Any tricks? Fill it with water or something? Any help is appreciated.
