Hi, my little girl was born at 29+5 and is now 5 months old. She's breastfeeding very often, (1-2 hours) and i'm worried she isn't satisfied. She puts her hands in her mouth/sucks on them all the time. She hasn't been gaining weight a lot, (been putting on 160grams weekly until the last 2 weeks she only put on 60grams) Do you think its still to early to introduce solids? and do preemies need more time for there stomachs to mature properly?
