I nursed Brayden for the first time yesterday. He is 34 weeks gestation now and he latched on with no problem. However, after 4 minutes and just at my letdown he fell asleep. I tried everything to wake him and he refuses. The NICU nurse said this is completely normal and we had to finish up the feed with a bottle of bm.
At least i know he can nurse. They took out the feeding tube and if needed (he isn't eating as they would like) it goes back in the nose and not the mouth.
Just wanted to share.
