My DD was born at 31 weeks and is now 36 weeks and a day. She is healthy in every aspect other then being a little anemic but the dr's aren't to worried about that. She could come home but she hasn't figured out the eating thing. She currently is gavaged 46ml. When I try breast feeding she'll latch but not suck. With bottle feedings (my breast milk) she only takes about 10 mls and then falls asleep. I met with a speech pathologist who said she could be overstimulated but i feel frustrated because i can't help how the NICU is lighted and all the noise.
Part of me wants to give up trying to breastfeed and just do bottle so she can get the hang of it and come home quicker. They keep saying one day it will click but it doesn't seem like it. Any advice on getting her to eat and not use a tube?
