I was just wondering if my baby is born early whether or not I will still be able to breast feed? Will they be too small or will my supply dry up before they are allowed out of nicu? I don't know a lot about breastfeeding and plan to start researching it but I do know that breastfeeding is something I really want to, mostly for the health benefits and the bonding time it will give me with my son. This may very well be my one and only child given the complications of this pregnancy and what it took to even get pregnant so I will be heart broken if I miss out on breastfeeding this bub.
I am a high risk pregnancy with cervix issues, was in hospital at 21weeks due to funnelling cervix. I have been told I will be lucky if I make it full term. My goal right now is to reach 24 weeks (1 week to go! ) then 28 weeks and so on.
Anyway sorry for the long post I hope I've put this in the right place! Thank u in advance xx
Edit - I'm so sorry I just realised I put this is in breathing issues I thought it was breast feeding issues! Mods please feel free to move this post
