    I know exactly how you feel hun. Niamh wasn't prem but was born with health problems and had an NG tube for 10 weeks. I expressed for her but only managed to do it for 4 weeks. It does take over your life. I eventually stopped cause my 4 year old son asked me why i didn't play with him anymore and it was because i was either tube feeding or pumping. Hopefully your little man will be able to breastfeed soon, Niamh has a cleft palate so will never be able to breastfeed which is another reason i stopped.
    Its bloody hard work hun but your doing a fab job xx

    I know it's hard, hun, but try to stay positive and think "it's not going to be like this forever" and it is so good for Aidan! :hugs:

    Is it possible to increase your flow rate? I don't know much about breastfeeding, but if you could get the milk flowing faster, then it might be less of a chore. And if it interferes too much, then there's nothing wrong with formula - your baby would rather have a happy mum and formula then booby milk and a miserable mum.
