I would like to talk to anyone with a premie. My daughter in law delivered 5 1/2 weeks early and had a 4lb 12 oz baby December 15, 2007. I was very successful in my day nursing and want her to be also. She states that the baby will not latch on so she is pumping and then bottle feeding the breast milk. This seems to be double work to me. He is now at 5lbs 5 ozs. But she is running out of steam. The doctor suggests to supplement with formula. To me that is a bad word. I gave her the la leche book as soon as I know she was pregrant, but it seems she is talking to friends and other family members who had a bad experience. One question she had was, How do I know he is getting enough if he does latch on. This is a familiar question and always a worry for alot of people. I remember my mother asked me the same question some 30 years ago.
