Re: Transition from NG tube
No experience with what you describe, but I just want to applaud you for providing breastmilk via pump and NG tube, especially when you have a c-section to recover from.
I don't think it's a bad idea to try providing milk via bottle. Of course there's a danger that your baby could get hooked on the bottle and not want to nurse. But I think at this point, it's sensible to be open to the possibility that the baby may not want to nurse, after so long on a NG tube and so little practice at the breast. If that happens, well, sometimes life throws you a curve ball.
Has anyone suggested at-the-breast feedings using a Supplemental Nursing System or Lact-Aide? I don't know if that would be practical for you and your baby, but it might be worth looking into.
