So its been determined that I will be in the confines of this lovely hospital room until baby comes-- i have gotten over my pity party for the most part and am just praying that baby stays baking. He is measuring ahead by 1 week and 2 days and while i know that u/s can be way off- i am simply hoping that it is not off by too much.
So ideas of what to do on my bed rest? good books to read..things to research..etc also does anyone have toddler and husband friendly recipes so my husband can make sure that ds is eating properly while i am away?
here is my main question... so i have been told by different people that if baby is born before 32 weeks I have to wait until 32 weeks before I can bring him to the breast (of course if there are no major issues going on) to feed. I would have to be feeding expressed milk through however nicu will be feeding him tube or syringe. I am waiting on the official answer from the nicu here. I have also heard different stories about nicu's having strict policies on breastfeeding. When I went to look it up there is lots of crap about preemies having so much of a harder time breastfeeding and the issues that come along with it. So I need to arm myself with knowledge and stories. Anyone know of people with b/f stories and their preemies or simply have any other info on the subject? Thanks!
