I delivered my son at 35 weeks and he was in NICU for a night, then with me. We were discharged home on day 3, but readmitted the following day for critical bilirubin levels. For that time I was breastfeeding and he was having adequate wet and dirty diapers. He was then in NICU for 6 nights and I was not allowed to breastfeed. . . they tried to convince me to give formula but I was insistent and he only has received breastmilk. We are home now and he is 3 weeks old. But I am having trouble getting him transitioned to fully breastfeeding. I saw a lactation consultant, and she has me using a nipple shield to help him get more milk when he nurses. When we weighed at the LC, he took about 35mL in a 10 minute nursing session. She advised me to offer a bottle of EBM after every other feeding, and he takes anywhere from 20-70mL. His stamina at the breast is not great. . . he gets very lethargic and only lasts about 8-12 minutes. Also, I don't feel empty at all. I am pumping 4+ times per day to ensure my supply is maintained. He has started taking 60mL in about 10 minutes, even using the Medela slow flow nipples. I am very eager to phase out the bottles. Anyone have experience/success with this? Thanks!
