Well our little man was born 5 weeks premmie and has only come out of special care at 14 days old. We have attempted breast feeding over the last 2 days and although the LC assures me I'm doing everything right, we just can't get a good latch and I'm cracked and bleeding a little already.
So as I've been expressing anyway as he's been tube fed, I'm going to continue to do so and am bottle feeding him EBM as I need to get him out of the hospital and home. I've got 2 other girls who are fretting at home because of my prolonged absences over the past 2 weeks.
Please don't judge me, I'm looking for support not criticism. Does anyone have tips on expressing and successfully bottle feeding? If so, how did you manage it? Tips and hints??!!
