My daughter was born at 35 weeks and in the NICU for 14 days and given my breastmilk through a tube & bottle. now at home she is having trouble latching on and continual suckling. We try at each feeding for 15 minutes or until she gets agitated. I continue to pump and feed through a bottle. I have considered a supplemental feeding supply tube, but am worried that will only confuse her more.
I am willing to pump as long as I need to, but would really like her to nurse, ANY SUGGESTIONS?????
I am also overseas and have not a lactation consultant available whom is english speaking.
Thank you for assistance
