A friend of mine who just had a baby with my midwife had an adorable baby boy who only licked her breasts and really didn't eat at all for several days, but I don't think she gave sugar water... or maybe I'm mistaken. If all else fails though, having a nursing friend who is willing and wating is a good plan. Hey, btw, what does your husband think about a friend nursing, my husband is very new to this natural stuff and is very grossed out by it.
