My son was born 5weeks early, actually today, and I'm not able to nurse him yet because he's in the NCIU. Does anyone have pointers? I'm going to be pumping with a hospital pump until he can try and nurse, any pumping pointers? He's not my first I breastfeed my daughter for 18 months until she weaned herself. I'd appreciate any tips.

congrats!

My daughter was 4 weeks early, not in the NICU, but because of her small mouth, made it hard to get a good latch. I am assuming they are not giving her bottles in the NICU, but feeding your pumped milk thru a syringe? How long do you think she will be in there? Is there a LC?

This. I hope they are syringe feeding so she doesn't get nipple confusion.

How is everything with the baby? Any health problems? So glad you are bf'ing. => awesome thing for an early one!

Tube feeding, I'm pumping now but my milk hasn't come in yet I haven't gotten anything yet , but I've only been pumping for 1 1/2days. Once I get some milk it will be syringe. He'll be there at least a week, and yes there's a lc I just saw her today to try and help me nurse for the first time. It didn't go well at all. He'd latch suck a couple times then latch, but only did this for 1min, rest of the time he was fussy, but I think he's feeling sick today.
