Sorry I haven't been on the site for awhile.
Marlow is doing great. We just need her to take her bottle for 48 hours of her feedings. I gave in to the bottle because I know I can get her home faster on that than the breast feeding (she'll take almost 50cc of the bottle vs 12cc from the breast). The LC says she should go back to breast easily once we can take her home.
The NICU has been a very traumatic place for us this last week. Twice now they have given her someone else's breast milk. The first time, we brought it to their attention and they told us we were "nit-picking" and they acted like we were making it up, the second time happened it was during a night feeding when we weren't around and the nurse admitted to it and brought it to her supervisor's attention.
We realize that people use breastmilk banks and such but from what I know that milk is screened before being given out. This has just really added more stress for us. We feel like the staff isn't as trustworthy as we'd like them to be.
We don't want to be seen as nit-picking or anything but this is our child and we don't feel like she is safe there. It feels like they are much
more worried about a lawsuit than our baby's health. We just want her to come home safe and healthy.
