Sometimes if i wait to long, Ds is so tired he doesnt' want to latch on even though i KNOW he's hungry. so recently i tried squirting him in the mouth while he was whining and although he was still cranky he latched right on and started sucking, for a full feed (this has been done several times now) and calmed right down.

I don't know if any other mamas have tried this, probably because it felt like a natural thing to do. I have a theory that if it feels natural, its probably fine. So give it a try when you're at your wits end or can't get baby to latch on.

hope it helps, take it or leave it.
