Re: Help re breastfeeding my premature b
Oh mama, you're doing a great job! Not all babies grow at the same rate. Formula packs on pounds, but that's not necessarily a good thing. I can gain tons of weight eating ice cream and fried chicken but would that be healthy? Wouldn't protein and good fats do a better job? Breastmilk is far superior. Trust your body. My daughter was born at 33 weeks, spent 4 weeks in the NICU. She was 4.6 when born and 5 lbs when she left the hospital. By a year she was 15.5 lbs. She is perfectly healthy. Long and lean. She grew at a slower pace and her doctors and I were comfortable with her pace. We did have some issues by a year but that was for other reasons. Try not to stress and look for the clues you mentioned. The right number of wet and poop diapers.
