These are my first children. My top priority is breast feeding them, but I'm failing miserably.
My DS is able to latch but it only occasionally is not painful and he feeds for an hour to two hours and is still hungry.
My DD is barely able to latch and not able to suck. She loves a bottle and screams at me when I try to feed her, so I've just been pumping for her.
They both have plenty of wet diapers and I'll find out tomorrow if they've gained weight.
Can anyone help?
I don't have a lot of experience with breastfeeding preemies, but you might get more hits for this if you posted it in one of the breastfeeding forums. I hope you can find the help you need!
