Magical Milk Pic-o-the-Week

"Here is another magical milk Pic of my K. She is, indeed, breastfeed. At the moment anything she swallows makes her vomit violently so I pump and then the milk is drip fed continuously via her tube into her small intestine. We still have skin-to-skin time and I still have hope that one day, after she has her cardio, palate and gastro surgery, we will be able to feed direct. Until then - we just do things a bit different. February is tube feeding awareness month so I thought I'd show off my little tubie."

I LOVE this! My youngest was also fed expressed breast milk through a tube until he was nearly 2. It was very hard to still feel like a nursing mom.

Miss K just sailed through her second open heart surgery with flying colours. She is on the good drugs now so a much happier girl all 'round
