I tried the shield with the lactation consultant but she wasn''t getting any milk with it. She weighed her before and after I tried it and NOTHING! She got a half of an oz drinking straight from me but she just about killed me and it wasn''t nearly enough for the time she was on. BOO HOO! This is killing me!

I second the nipple shield!!! They were a lifesaver... we had to use it for about 3 weeks until he got the hang of it. I would quickly slip it out when he was halfway through feeding to get him used to sucking without it. He eventually got it!

I don''t know if it would help any, but we are also having latch problems. At the hospital they gave me a Medela nipple shield that I use to feed Claire and it works great. It might be worth a try!
