My doula had promised that 24 hours of this sort of feeding would give Cort a fresh start and make him forget about bottle feeding.
All together, it took about 3 weeks of struggle to get Cort reliably nursing without a fight. I found that he did better nursing on his own, because he was so distracted by having Reid near him. I can say today that it was one of the most worthwhile struggles I've been through in my life. I'm so thankful that both boys will nurse. Cort, in particular, is not a snuggly baby because he's so active, so being able to bond with him in his feedings has been really important. And Reid would continue to eat all day if I'd let him ;-)
