After a very tough start with 5 days NICU, formula feeding through a tube, I have finally got Rory on to exclusive breastfeeding. He lost 11% of his weight over 5 days in NICU but is slowly gaining it back now. I've seen a lactation consultant and his latch is good most of the time. He tends to get over excited and bite at the start but he does calm down quickly and latch nicely. But it's hard work. I know it's meant to be for the first weeks and months but I would love some reassurance it does get easier and some idea how long it took for you.
