Anyone breastfed a premie?

I had my baby a week ago, he came unexpectedly at 34+5 and is coming home from SCBU tomorrow

I have been pumping like a crazy woman since birth and luckily my milk has come in really well.

At the moment I have managed a couple of breast feeds, but he's a very sleepy boy, so likely that it will be bottle of EBM, breast and pumping.

Just wondering if any of you out there have any experience of breastfeeding a premie and can give me any tips, warnings and tell me what your experience was? I breastfed my daughter for 18 months and would love to do the same or longer this time, especially so as he came early. TIA x
