My daughter was a preemie. She was born 10 weeks early and spent 6 weeks in the NICU, where she received BM w/ fortifier.
I was scared she would never learn how to nurse well!
Now...she is 14 weeks, home for 8 weeks, and since she came home, ALL SHE WANTS TO DO IS NURSE.
This baby will nurse until she throws up!
Of course, I try other ways of entertaining/comforting, but it always comes back to the breast. And of course I don't ever want to take away her food supply, she still has to gain LOTS of catch-up weight.
But...is this normal? I don't remember this with my first (full term).
