Congratulations on your baby boy.. wonderful news that he is coming home soon...
Re- the breastfeeding problem... when ds was born we had similar nipple confusion issues where he wouldnt take the breast just the bottle.. we solved it by using a nipple shield.. he knew the plastic texture fromt he bottle.. and it meant that we could breast feed without pumping.. Admit it did take a while to get him to wean from the nipple shield... but we did it.. We breastfed until he was 13months old..!!
Good luck and best wishes for you and your family!

Thank you all for your kind words and prayers. Daniel has been doing better. He came off the ventilator a couple of days ago and was put on a nasal candula he also started feeding. The NICU has been giving him my breast milk in a bottle. Yesterday I was finally able to get him to the breast, but he isn't latching on. He really likes the bottle and the pacifier. They think when we get him home he will pick-up the breast feeding. Its really frustrating though. I left him yesterday after trying to feed him for an hour completely engorged and rock hard. The best news is that he came off the oxygen last night at 3am and if he manages to stay off it all day today he should be able to come home tomorrow, yay!

I just read your update....great!!! I think you are right, once you get home he will pick up breastfeeding. That was the case with my daughter...she was taking mostly bottles in the hospital, and it only took me a few weeks after we got home to get her off the bottle completely and she BF for almost a year.

Yay Daniel! Let us know when he is home. [:)]

So glad Daniel's doing better and that he may be home real soon. I'll bet he will be able to breastfeed better without the distractions of the NICU.
