friend with premature baby
My friend went into premature labor on Saturday at 29 weeks and then the baby was born by emergency c-section. He is 2 lb, 3 oz and is doing well, I guess.
I know he will be in the hospital for a couple of months. My heart is breaking for them that they are going to have to leave the hospital and leave him there. I know they will be spending most of their time at the hospital over the next few months.
My question is - how do I help them? What do they need? We have already started cooking and freezing dinners for them. Would they be able to use pumped milk if I gave it to them? Lilah is 17 months, so I'm not sure if my milk would be any good for a premature baby? Hopefully they will be able to get the milk they need from milk banks, would it be weird of me to offer?
