My twins were born prematurely at 29 weeks, and are in the NICU. I have been pumping and bringing the breastmilk to the hospital; however, the first time it was fed to my babies, they got a blood infection. The hospital tested the babies and the breastmilk, and found that the babies and the breastmilk had the same bacteria...a common one found on the skin. I have replaced all my pump parts, bought the bags that hang off the breastshields (to avoid transferring from a bottle), boil everything after every use, wash myself throroughly, and the bacteria is still there. Depending on who I speak to at the hospital, sometimes I am told to dump the breastmilk and forget about breastfeeding, and other times I am told to freeze it, because the babies are preemies and may not be able to handle it now, but may in the future. My OB/GYN doesn't seem to know anything about it, so I have not been tested for anything. Has anyone ever had this situation?
