When and before I got pregnant, I already decided that I was going to breastfeed, but since my son was born premature, he had trouble latching on to my breast. We worked on it for a quite some time, but since he was so little, it was difficult for him to latch. So I pumped and pumped and pumped, and got as much milk as I could and I still continued to try to breastfeed him in between the bottle feedings (with my breast milk in the bottle of course), and he started to be able to latch on better and we continued to work on it and we finally accomplished it. I'm just wondering if any other mothers had the same difficulties that I had when trying to breastfeed their preemie.
