I tried a couple times in the NICU but he'd desat every time. Since desats were the thing keeping him there, I decided to stop trying until he came home. Then when we tried it at home, he'd scream bloody murder any time my boob got near him. So I figured, "This is not a good bonding experience for either of us" and just pumped. I managed to go a year exclusively pumping. I figured by then he was ridiculously fat and plenty healthy, and by the time our freezer stash was gone, he was ready for whole milk.

This time around, I'm really hoping to nurse, preemie or no preemie...but I also know that stuff happens and I just have to roll with it.
