I have 11 month old b/g twins. I have been exclusively pumping for them since birth and my ds had palate repair 3 weeks ago. I am trying to encouage him to suck anything! I have tried a bottle (haberman nipple, Mead Johnson cleft nurser), soothers, my finger, a cup. Anything that I can think of I have tried and he does not want anything to do with it. I know he can get a suction because he is always making ppp sounds. (physically imposible for him to do before his palate repair)
I am welcome to all and any advice!
