    well we have not had a easy time feeding and I have nearly given up sooo many times :blush: but Im soooo proud of us this week....lo developed bronchiolitis and we have spent 5 days in hospital, he was in a oxygen tank and been fed through his nose :cry: I thought thats it I was not meant to BF !!! They wanted to feed him every 2 hours through his nose and said they would top up my EBM with formula :cry:


    well I managed to get through the whole 5 days pumping and the occasional BF without him having any formula!!!! wooooohooooo for us!! lol

    also we both developed thrush in hospital (it never rains but it pours!!) so I think we are bloomin marvellous!!! lol

    Hi bumpty,
    I'm so sorry to hear that you've been through such a stressful time. I was thinking I hadn't seen you around in a little while.

    But well done being so persistant with the b/f, it will have helped so much with LO's recovery too. Hope that he is making a good recovery now, it must have been so frightening. I have been dreading my LO even getting a cold so I can only imagine what you have been going through.

    :hug:
