Ok I willl definitely talk to them. My high risk doctor said sometimes they have problems with their digestive system when they're born around 24-28 weeks mostly and that they may have to feed him through a tube in his umbilical chord which they wouldn't be able to put breast milk through but if he does have that I could still rub colostrum on his lips which would help.
And no, I don't think its bad to have your daughter try to get your milk in! I think that you gotta do what you gotta do and if she doesn't have a problem with it then there is no problem. Everyone benefits.

Yeah it's not milk at all it's just like a nutrient stuff they do for the tiny ones who can't digest milk yet. So you'll have lots of time To pump and get your milk in if he's really early. But yeah I read in my guide to the nicu that for young ones who can't eat yet they take your milk on a qtip and swab their mouth so they get the antibodies.



So the hospital you're at has a nicu then? My regular hospital didn't so I had to go an hour away to te regional nicu :( so nobody comes to see me.

Yep I'm in a pretty major city and this hospital supposedly has a great NICU. A girl in my due date group was telling me I should go to Boston buttt it's an hour and a half away and I cannot be without my husband and son, especially when I go into labor or have to have him taken out.
Last night when they were leaving my son told me to come home with them and that I didn't have to stay here :cry: I started bawling. I can barely take 2 days idk how I'm going to last 2 months.
I can't imagine being an hour away!

I know mama. I wish I could tell you it gets easier. But I still cry when lylian and Sam have to leave :( and on stretches where they can't come see me for days it's so hard :( lylian says the same things to me. Last night Sam Hve me his sweater to keep here and I put it on and lylian smiled and goes "are you coming with us!?" it broke my heart.



As long as your hospital has a good nicu that's what matters. This is the only nicu in the area. It covers 18 counties.

I didn't even think about recording! That would be so much better than pictures.



And I hope your kids start to understand and get more used to you being there!
