My baby is a 32-weeker and still in the "special care nursery" which is NICU for babies that are healthy but learning to feed. She has been there three weeks. My daughter does well at the breast (10 minutes each side and no supplement after, sleeps through to next feeding) but gets tired out with bottle feedings at the hospital because she has a very strong suck and the milk flows from the bottles too fast. Because of that she takes very little from a bottle, though she can nurse from me and be satisfied. They said today they will try a special extremely slow flow nipple. She has gained lots of weight, so much that they have lowered the fortification to 22 cal from 24. She was born 5 lb 14 oz, lost 7 oz the first week, and as of yesterday she weighs 6 lbs 10 oz. This is very draining. I want her to come home, but I don't know how to help her. Some of the staff is very helpful and supportive, while I feel others just treat her and me as "one size fits all". I feel like if she came home, she would eat enough. My production has been excellent, I eat well and take awesome vitamins, and I drink plenty of water. Of course, I'm not a doctor and don't know all the factors in their decision-making, I just want what's best for my baby.
