    With the baby born at 27 weeks, I think she will have at least 4-6 weeks to get her supply going. I have never heard of a premie that young going home in a month an a half. Odds are, she will have 2 to 3 months minimum before the hospital cuts them off.

    Good luck momma, and I hope you are getting lots of support from the hospital staff and LCs. I think it is crazy that the hospital would withhold a life-saving substance like that, just because the baby wouldn't get it at home.

    I think she said the LO was born four and half weeks ago so she may not have that much time.
    What area of the country are you in Mama? Maybe someone can provide more info about the milk share in your area.
