Even 'late preemies' have their issues

Elijah doesn't suck. Heh heh.
Actually he does suck, but not very well. He tires out easily and can't get all of my milk out. It doesn't *seem* like a weak suck when he's latched on! Makes me wonder what the real thing will be like, LOL!

So here he is getting a supplementary feed via tube. Surgery and tube feeds. Déjà vu.

don't be too hard on yourself. LOTS of babies have challenges with breastfeeding. That's why there are so many great lactation consultants out there. He'll get it. :)

And, then he may never want anything else ever again... We're going on a month now of Paige trying and refusing solids...
