Many moms wonder if they can still breastfeed their premature baby. Yes, you can, but it isn't always a easy road. Your milk is perfect for your baby because colostrum and your breast milk have antibodies, white blood cells, and immune properties that will help in your baby resisting infection.
Keep in mind that sometimes even with the best of intentions your breastmilk supply may decrease if all you can do is pump and your baby is still too small to nurse. If you have only managed to express a small amount of colostrum and breast milk, it will help your baby more than you realize.
