Hello, I'm new here and hope this conversation hasn't been previously posted. My daughter was 2 months early, born in March. I need to return to work for financial reasons of course, and my FMLA is just about up. But i'm SO nervous about leaving her in daycare or in someone else's care. She doesn't have apnea episodes as she used to, but she still has a hard time drinking from a bottle without choking up. And that's laying her down to drink...she still can not drink held up at all w/o completely choking up and losing her breath and color. Has anyone else faced the dilemma of leaving ur preemie to go to work? Was anyone able to find a way to stay home and bring an income?
