My son was born at 33 weeks. He was flown to another hospital (one with a NICU) and due to complecations during the pregnancy, I had to stay and recover for 3 days at the hospital he was born at. The Dr. gave me a breast pump to help my milk come in. I pumped for 15 minutes a side every three hours during those 3 days, and nothing ever came out. My milk came in, but because I couldn't get anything out, and because I wasn't allowed to nurse my son, it dried up during the two weeks my son was in the NICU. I ended up having to feed my son formula which is something I did NOT want to do. Did anyone else have this happen to them?
