Breast Feeding

Postby njj20404 » Mon Mar 22, 2004 07:25 am

Hi!!! I'm a first time mom and am going to be trying to breast feed our little preemie this afternoon for the first time. He has been doing really great with his bottle feeds. I'm a little nervous on how to hold him to breast feed being that he is so small (1780 grams). I'm going to have a lactation specialist with me at the hospital today but was wondering if anyone had any tips for successful breastfeeding?

Thanks so much!!!
