I totally get the concept of using the older stuff first and not wasting anything but I'm making way more than he's eating right now so either the old or the fresh needs to be frozen. I guess I always thought my milk changes daily to be exactly what the baby needs, so wouldn't it be best that he gets the freshest milk? She's also talking about freezing some of the older milk to give to him next week but surely fresh would be better than frozen and thawed right?
I'm so frustrated and feel so helpless. This particular nurse also won't let me hold him for two feedings in a row (all the other nurses thought it was great) and make comments about him "not tolerating" the kangaroo care because he spit up a bit when she put him back.
I wonder what advice other mom's might have for me, I'm feeling pretty crappy about my role in his care and am not sure what to do.
I also realize nurses have his best interest in mind and I want to be careful not to overstep any boundaries, especially since I rely on them to care for him. I just don't even feel like we're on the same team.
