I think I have to retract my previous statement.
We attempted a bottle yesterday, and N wouldn't have it. He is a breast baby, and the bottle was hard for him. Since then, he has taken off with the breastfeeding. I think he was just telling us what he prefers!
At any rate, it appears that the bottle will not help N get home sooner. If they decide he still needs the fortifier in a couple of days, we may need to try one again, but for now, we are focusing on getting good feeds at the breast. I'm desperately trying to get N home for Christmas, but the LC (and I see her point, but...!) doesn't want to push him too fast. Since yesterday, he is suddenly much more alert in general and quite eager at the breast. Hopefully this continues!
He is now 4 lbs 13 oz! I can't believe how big he is!
