DOes anyone have any experience with just pumping and bottle feeding? My daughter is 16 days old and has a problem with nursing, she isn't latching on right, and I haven't been producing enough milk to satisy here, I started taking the fenugreek and I got more milk in but she still won't nurse, so I've just been pumping and feeding her every drop I can get out, has anyone else did this, and how realistic is it? I have 2 other kids that are 2 and 3, is it a reachable goal that I will be able to keep atleat feeding my daughter more then 50% breastmilk everyday? How hard it it to keep your supply up if you just pump? Don't get me wrong I still try all day long to get her to latch on, I try before and after each feeding and I even offer it for just snacking or just for comfort just to promote her going back to the breast, she tried hard but she just can't seem to get it, she clicks alot when she's sucking even when she's getting a bottle. I'm just looking for some advice and support, and I don't want to set my mind and heart on a goal that's not attainable, the lactation nurse said it's not easy to just pump but she said some have done it,so I don't know what to do

My ENT sent me for more tests last week...one where they had me lie back in a chair, with blacked out goggles on so I couldn't see while they administered water into my ears one at a time ( first warm, then room-tempurature, then cold) while they video taped my eyes and asked me questions to determine how cognizant I was... This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
