Re: What would you do? Super low supply and NICU baby

when my baby was in the NICU i just pumped/nursed as well as i could and then worked on it after baby came home. I think i finally got him exclusivey bf'ng around 6 weeks old. My first baby had some issues too and I had to supplement her until 12 weeks old. I would say just keep it up and relax and enjoy your time with your baby during the hands on times until you get him home. Good Luck!

*hugs* I don't know for sure since I have not been in a similar situation. Maybe pump every two hours even if you don't get much and it'll help build up your supply. Also make sure you relax to pump as stress can decrease milk production. Good luck mama.
