Just wanted to start up a board for preemie moms for support and advice.
A little about my teeny one: DD was born at 30wk+6 and in the NICU for 34 days. This Wednesday will be 2 weeks since her discharge home and today was my first day with DH back at work. DD is doing great, is now 6lbs (born 3lb 5oz) and just finished her 3oz bottle in 14 min! (It's definitely the little things with these teeny ones )
I am struggling right now with deciding whether to continue trying to nurse or just exclusively pump. LO's sucking is still a little weak and she hardly gets anything when nursing (and I'm left even more sore than prior to the feed).
What worked with your preemie? What did you struggle most with? Any general advice? Best preemie gear?
