Re: Breastfeeding while in NICU...Did it work for you?

My second was growth restricted and in the NICU for 2 weeks. Nursing was difficult, in that he frequently fell asleep soon after trying to nurse, and would not be roused. I was able to pump enough to give him though, so I think any formula he had was minimal. I don't really think he had any formula, though. It did help that I had already been nursing my DS1 (15mo then), so I didn't have to wait for the milk to be accessible.

Remember that your bra size doesn't determine how much milk you make. I am also an A.
