• A nipple shield can be used as a last resort to try and shape the nipple, allowing baby to latch on more easily.
If baby is not drinking enough during feedings, Mom can pump
in-between feeding to increase milk supply. Mom can give the supplements
of breast milk to baby with a SNS (supplementary nursing system)
Bottle containing pumped milk is attached to the breast with a little
tube running into the side of baby’s mouth, while baby is breastfeeding.
This will help baby learn to breastfeed while being supplemented with
Moms milk/donated milk or formula.
