I don't know your baby's particular conditions, but "in general" I think on demand nursing and as much kangaroo care as possible will only benefit your child. I have learned over the years to trust my instincts as a mother, and if something "feels" wrong, it usually is.
Make sure you are also pumping to keep up your supply
Wow! Your story is inspiring!
I am wondering if we should try to do bottle feeds, as he takes them great, I have just been afraid he won't go to the nipple if I do. He's still not taking all orally, he's still on the gavage and I am getting pretty frustrated. I have been using an SNS but he still only takes 15-20ccs before he conks out. I think if I left him for longer he would get the full feeding, but I have a 2 yr old and I am pumping too...I just am having a hard time balancing. I have the feeling if I was allowed to wear him all the time and nurse him on demand, he would be taking everything from me. But since I am here and he is required to be hooked to machines, and I need to leave to take care of my ds1, I am stuck with their schedule.
Now they are wanting to supplement my milk with some vitamins, but it's carrier is a petroleum oil! It's crazy what they are trying to give kids.
