I'm so delighted to share that my LO is HOME! He came home yesterday with no complications, the day before his due date!
We're on 60mls/2oz of 27 calorie supplemented breastmilk for at least 6-7 of his feedings during the day (I can breastfeed once or twice until he starts gaining more weight, then more breast!), and he's eagerly taking a bottle and finishing everything, but he's a MESS with the bottle, dribbling and spilling. It's hard to tell if he's getting enough actually in his tummy!
On the contrary, at the breast he's a very tidy eater!
Any thoughts? Nipple suggestions?
