I agree with the above advice. I have had 2 daughters with a tongue-tie and my first DD's wasn't caught until she was a few days old and she did a lot of damage to my nipples.
I also don't understand why you couldn't start using the nipple shield? I have never heard that you have to wait for your milk to come in to use one. I used one starting on day 2 (with the DD with a tongue-tie) without a problem. Basically, you just put it on your nipple and let your baby latch on using it.
I produce less than a quarter of an ounce of what looks like watery skim milk.
That sounds like milk to me, or you are at least transitioning from colostrum to milk, that's a good sign!
