I had my little boy @ 41 weeks & 3 days by c section...He was 9 lbs 8oz & 21 inches long. When I was in the hospital I got to feed him a hour after my section. We done ok.. well he is into sucking. So my husband gave him his finger till I got back from recovery. We gave him the hospital binky.Well he would NOT take to me,... I was sooo upset I was cry'n. So we got him to take to me We did away with the binky. However he still wants to suck.. so we was use'n our finger. he is now 9 days old & gained weight @ his newborn appt. my question is can we try another binky?? We cant keep putting our fingers in his mouth ya know?? I dont know what to do & family is getting mad that he is cry'n & we give him our finger. We know that its not very sanitary & we wash our hands ALL THE TIME, but we cant keep doing this. PLEASE help us. THANKS SO MUCH!!
