    @Flower78, I know that Toys R Us have them and I think Baby Bunting might just call and ask. It's called the Medela Easy Expression Bustier.

    Are you being admitted as a private patient or a public patient? If you're private, you might be able to stay a little longer. I was in for six days after my vaginal birth but part of that was because I was sick as well, of course.

    I stayed 5 nights after having DD via CS at KEMH as private patient, but public or private I think there is provision to allow you to stay a little longer than the normal 3 if you've been unwell or bub is in NICU. The midwife at the practice where I'm having my next baby (who also works at KEMH) was actually surprised I didn't get to stay longer as she knew of the provisions that OBs can use to allow stays to be a little longer.

    Hope you can hold out as long as possible!

    I was lucky enough to stay seven nights after having my little one at KEMH, so definitely do ask about staying in longer.

    Well ladies he is here at 31 weeks 1day! I felt he wasn't moving like normal yesterday afternoon, and went in for a ctg. He had a prolonged bradycardia and so Craig came in to deliver him last night.
    our baby boy is just amazingly beautiful, 970g only, unfortunately despite the steroids has breathing problems, so he's on the ventilator. We are hoping it will only be a couple of days but taking each day as it comes. Expressing is going well so far, and so glad I had all your advice about what would happen as it made it feel more familiar.
    Back to the nursery now after a nap, to see how our brave boy is going.

    Congratulations @Flower78 and very best of luck for the journey ahead. My DD was ventilated for 3 weeks and has no longer term lung or breathing issues at all, so whilst not ideal, don't stress too much about the length of time he's ventilated.

    As he was under 1kg you should receive a Parents of Prems Care Package in the nursery some time during the week with a cooler bag to transport your EBM, some breast pads and a few other useful items x
