It's just starting to really sink in I guess."I agree with the last person. You may not even see much of the NICU, but if you do, usually they encourage kangaroo care and bfing as soon as possible. I was also encouraged to stay there 24/7 and at least attempt to bf at every feed. The more of that stuff you do, the faster your baby will likely make it home too.

I'm hoping since they are Bfing friendly they know what they're doing and will have me there Bfing as much as possible."Mine were born at 34 weeks and 4 days. I attempted bf for the first time two days after they were born, but that's only because they ended up being transferred to another hospital to make room for more sick babies because they were doing so well. Once I got to the new hospital, they had me put them to breast right away.
