For some reason this topic always makes me so weepy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our boy came home but our daughter is still in the NICU. I find that it takes 5-10 minutes to get him to latch well, he just fuddles around in the beginning. Pedi is putting a lot of pressure on me to have him gaining more each day so I temporarily stopped trying to BF.
Then, our daughter has some feeding issues, she tires easily, which is why she is still in the NICU. They try to do 2 bottle feedings then maybe 1 tube feeding through her nose if she seems pooped. Once again, with the pressure to eat and gain weight, I feel like giving up.
It makes me kind of emotional because i thought it would have been much easier. I looked forward to it but it seems so time consuming and emotionally draining.
I am just looking for some support either way with this issue. Either to encourage me or make me feel less guilty for wanting to give up.
