how to bf a baby in the hospital??

DS has to be in the hospital Wednesday morning til Thursday morning with a GI probe coming out of his nose and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on bfing in this situation. He is not a very good eater anyway and I'm concerned that he will go on a nursing strike with the tube coming out of his nose

What kind of tube is it? Going from his nose to his stomach?? If so, my son has had one of those for a lot of his life. It just takes a little proding, but usually they'll still b/f okay. They might gag a little with the tube being in their throat. A few tries, and you should be okay.

You can do it mama!

thanks. It is one of the tubes that goes through his nose into his stomach. I guess I'm just more nervous than anything else.

Yeah you should be ok. My dd had one of those when she was a baby and your dc will probably gag because of the tube down the throat, but I am sure will still BF ok!
