During our “babymoon” today, we were laying in bed, skin-to-skin, when Ruby began to fuss. I put on my nipple shield and offered her the breast.
AND SHE TOOK IT!!!!!!!!!
She settled back down and went back to sleep, comfort nursing. She didn’t swallow much. I didn’t care. It was only for a few short minutes. But it does offer hope!
So, I’m really hoping that working with a nipple shield that is shaped like the bottle and also a homemade SNS that is easier to use, we can have some success on Wednesday at 5pm.
