Anyway, I don’t know if I’m being overly confident or just stubborn, but I don’t believe in nipple confusion. Today, my baby was fussing and didn’t want to drink from her usual position (cross-cradle). I got annoyed and chided her firmly. “Elise, you’d better drink now. Do you want the football hold or not? DRINK”. Note that I did not raise my voice or shout at her, but I used a very firm tone. I picked it up from the nurses at NUH.
Now, we are doing awesome. My dad, hub and I even predict and pre-empt her cries so she doesn’t even get to cry sometimes. She is 9 days old today.
