Hello all, i had my little one at 33 weeks August 20th, ther first 2 days he breastfed pretty good the day he was born he fed for 25 minutes ther next day he nursed for 45 minutes but he then became jaundiced and i wasn't allowed to even hold him for 24 hours i feel this really set us back in nursing. Since then we have been putting him to breast 4 times a day while tube feeding he'll sometimes start to latch but not suck. He's deff not getting much milk if any from the tap. We use nipple shield no nipple shield I'm doing everything i can to no avail. So my question is for you premiee moms who successfully ebf how long did it take to get them to latch consistently? This will really be our major hurdle to going home and it really worries me that it's going to prolong our stay! He's still in ther incubator until he consistently doesn't lose weight but he's already almost ready to be out so its really the breastfeeding that we need to conquer. I was told that at 34 weeks a light bulb would go off and he would just start so I'm still waiting. So how long did breastfeeding take and how long were they in the NICU before they got to go home?
