comment Why would my 9 week old refuse to nurse from breast?
@BBM I am not sure. A full evaluation would tell us more about the oral motor function. Without it, I would just be speculating. :-)

comment Why would my 9 week old refuse to nurse from breast?
@BBM I was not familiar with the Castillo-Morales method you mentioned. After research, I realized that I use the methods but was trained by other who did not reference Castillo-Morales. I appreciate the info! The Playtex Nurser is a good place to start. I have a list at work that I'll share later just in case the first try doesn't work.

comment Should I be concerned that my 3 year old is not able to pronounce an 'r' sound?
@Darwy I understand your concern. Turn your focus on doing some of the activities above in fun and know that you are supporting his /r/ with no "browbeating".

comment Why would my 9 week old refuse to nurse from breast?
Your experience is consistent with research that "nipple confusion" is more likely by babies that have difficulty with mom's breast too and is not true confusion but rather difficulty with the process of sucking. No problems are reported here with sucking but more preference for the bottle. Rarely are midwives & nurses trained to address the problem. The La Lache League International <llli.org/>; is a site for lactation information.

comment Is there any scientific evidence in favor of co-sleeping with children?
@Bill So sorry for your loss. My friend's 4 month old also died while co-sleeping with her with no drugs, etc involved. The risk is so great and the consequences unspeakable.
