Finger feeding is a method that helps train the baby to take the breast. It can also be used to avoid artificial nipples, but its primary purpose is to help latch on a baby who refuses to latch on. Cup feeding, which is is better than a bottle, should be used to feed a baby who is not yet taking the breast.
My little boy was born on 1/25. He apparently likes to have his tongue on the roof of his mouth. The lactation consultant tried to help us out on a couple of different occasions. We ended up having to finger feed him with a syringeIs there any way we can get him to "re-learn" how to latch on?
