1. have so much trouble getting my milk in (still only get max 10mL at every pump)…isn’t this supposed to be natural?

2. Take & drink so much Fenugreek WILLINGLY…ANYTHING to get the milk to come in

3. Actually feel pain when my son cries…as a teacher, I’ve heard every sob story, seen many students & parents cry; and while I feel for them & do my best to help them solve their problem, I’ve never felt pained.  But my son’s cry because he hates the gavage tube being put in or because he’s frustrated that there’s no milk coming out of my breast, TEARS MY HEART OUT.

4. Seriously never want to leave his side…I KNOW the NICU nurses are giving him great care & there are “cuddlers” to nurture him if he gets fussy, but I want to be there to do it all…can’t wait until they discharge him home.

5. Actually WANT all the old school advice from my outdated mother, MIL, grandmother, what have you…especially after giving birth 7 weeks early.

There’s more, but I’m being called by the alarm to pump.

Oh, I miss those precious newborn days 🙂

I agree with 808, I went from hardcore AAP guidelines to total hippie parent.  We co-sleep, do babywearing, do baby led weaning…

Ms.pascua- hang in there with the NICU stay and the pumping.  Hopefully they let you do skin to skin a lot because that will help so much with the letdown!

Hugs to both of you!

I never thought I would:

  • stop breastfeeding before a year
  • have such a hard time with changes that Addie has no problem adjusting to
  • get jealous when other people get to spend time with my baby while I have to work
  • want another baby so soon after the first
  • be that parent that takes their child out in public with food/spit up on her shirt or face
  • actually learn to like my in-laws 🙂
