Well why is she in a position like that if she can't deal with people or talk to them right? She knows her job is to be there for the people and patients, so if she can't handle it, then she shouldn't be there.

We literally drive not even 5 mi with no traffic so it's not far at all but still its not the point ur right. I hope she stops and she was talked to today b/c i really dont want to have a tiff with anyone back theyre nurses or not.

i was told to stop bringing milk because the trays assigned to my son were full and i wasnt approved for the donor trays so i stopped bringing it and they ran out multiple times so i brought my whole supply to just throw it in their faces it was well over 75 ounces.... then my supply stopped coming in from the pump and my son was on nipple feeds yet they wouldnt let him latch...so he only got 6 weeks of milk but hes super healthy and so amazing :)

yeah nicu is like that
and your baby is not going to use all that milk so why not leave it at home and label till they need it. other moms need room for their milk too. its not only YOUR freezer



and its liability if they are doing a procedure you arent supposed to be there. because if it looks like they are rough handling baby you can sue.

I went through a similar situation when my son was in the NICU. Talk to the lactation consultant--they are the ones that control the freezers (at least at the hospital i was at) and ask if there is a limit on what you can bring in. I had a nurse tell me that and i didn't think anything of it so i started packing some of it up and taking it home with me and the LC asked why and i told her. She was pissed and said that it was ridiculous and that i could store as much as i wanted.



They also did a similar thing to me when i wanted to visit him, told me they were setting up a procedure that i didn't know about ahead of time and then made me wait for a almost an hour to talk to an attending physician to see what was going on. It was very frustrating.
Toward the end I just didn't want them tounching my baby anymore because the nursing staff were acting like they were his parents or had more of an interest in his wellbeing than i did and it felt very intrusive. I actually told off one the attendings there when a nurse made a feeding error with my son that resulted in his saturation levels going down to the 60s and this was the day he was supposed to come home and because she made an error they felt they had to keep him an extra two days. I was PISSED and gave the attending an earfull about it. I would report her behavior if i were you, they are supposed to have ongoing sensitivity training, sounds like she didn't pay attention at her last go around.

Well, it's funny b/c I brought it up a couple of days later to one of the nurses I really trust and I asked her ' can i have to much milk in the freezer and she said WHAT?? told her what happen yada yada ' All the nursing staff got an e-mail saying that they should NEVER tell a parent to stop brining they're milk and that they will always have and make room if needed. Which is exactly what I have been told by lactation and all the nurses IDK if i bring home a years supply with me by the time it's over this lady was crabby or something but so ive heard she is pretty ignorant to the other families as well. And I can honestly care less if I can't see my DD due to someone elses baby being worked on thats totally understandable it was just the way she told me 'you cant see your BABY' well first off i had NO idea what a sterial procedure was she never told me on my DD she said 'around' okay does this mean cleaning her bed cleaning the flood IDK ive never had to basically live in a NICU before so everyones ignorance towards it all can f off for all i care lol so anyways at least you know what i'm saying its a sensitive time and the people who bring you down def. do not matter nurses or not but thanks for the post :)
