Q:

My 4m baby had lost his birthweight from 3.1 to 2.65 in the 1st mth even with exclusive breastfeed and due to latching issues, doc adviced Nusobee. Meanwhile, since I was planning to join work I started giving him expressed bm and Nusobee thru bottle. Now I m taking steps to increase my milk supply and eliminate Nusobee but latching issue still remain since baby is now used to bottle. Pl suggest some solution.

Pls get the help of lactation consultant in your area. Latching issues has to be corrected in the initial stage after delivery. Your kid 4month old and hence he/she will feel difficulty in learning new latching technique as he is used to the improper latch till now. But give a try. Also see some latching techniques for proper latch in YouTube. Mixing of bottles and direct feed may lead to nipple confusion I guess
