Hi there, my little Paylyne did this as well and I tried lactation consultants and used the sugar water but then my s-n-l told me about a breast shield. It is just a small cover that goes over your nipple and baby attaches to it. I was pumping for the first week and now I dont pump at all and it prevents you from getting sore. I purchased mine from walmart and a pharmacy. This will help your little one to attach and you can be sure and have enough milk.

Will you still get your milk? Was that the question?? Yes your milk will coem in as long as you are stimulating the nipples. But I suggest you find a lactation consultant as soon as possible or find out how to get ahold of your local La Leche League Leader, and try to get the baby to latch. Good luck and congrats on the babe!
