    Default Preemie baby made it to EBF!

    I wanted to take a moment to express how much I love this site. Because of a couple of very dedicated NICU nurses and this site, my preemie baby is now EBF at nearly 4 months old

    After working so hard to get him BFing, he has now started refusing a bottle (of expressed milk). While it would be nice for DH to be able to feed at times, this makes me incredibly proud. I am providing everything my baby needs, all of the time

    Thanks ladies for all of the encouragement!

    That's awesome! I'd like to note that you forgot to you include your own determination on that list, though ! So happy for you and your LO; it's a wonderful feeling to come such a long way and know you didn't give up. Good job, mama!
