hi all! my best friend just had her baby last night at 35 wks and 5 days. he's 5lbs 1oz.
i'm going to see her today and she wants answers! i dont have time to search the threads.
i have no idea about bf'ing a preemie.
the nurse came and talked to her for 2 min. and just said that she couldnt bf because he's small/can't suck, etc....
please help me help her!!
i need to know what questions that she needs to ask, b/c obviously she wont get any info otherwise.
where can she get a nipple sheild, does she need one of those? does she need to start pumping a little? she didnt even know that they HAVE pumps at the hospital!!!!!!
i'm leaving in a couple hours, i'd like to have a few answers for her. (i swear, it's like i had a baby myself nd just found out....i'm a freak)
thank you so much for your quick responses
