I am 29 years old and I had twin girls who were born premature at 24 weeks gestation.They have been in the NICU for 17 weeks now. I'm hoping that they get to come home soon but when they were born they were 1 pound 2 oz and 1 pounds 5 oz. They have come ALONG way since then but still require oxygen and heart monitors because they have 10 or so bradycardia spells a day. Most they can fix themselves but they still have bad ones that they need to be stimulated.i haven't been able to make the 2 hour drive to see my baby girls in 7 days now and the nurse called and they are almost out of breast milk. I desperately need to get to my babies and take them the milk I have pumped. And I miss my babies soo bad. I'm a single mom because my husband died in a car accident when i was 4 months pregnant and I've been struggling since. I've called salvation army, red cross, March of dimes, the hospital where they are, and local churches and no one helps with things like this. I get it there are more important things that need attention but I do need to take them their breast milk to survive. I even had people be rude to me and tell me I'll survive without seeing them. Idk I just feel like I have no one to help me at all and I dont know where to turn now. Can anyone PLEASE point me in the right direction of some place or one that could help? PLEASE they have one bottles worth left of breast milk the nurse just called. Thank you & God Bless.
Do not worry, as your babies are in no danger. I just looked into the issue of breast milk, and even if they must feed them formula, it will do them no harm. I will be praying for your situation, and see if I can locate a charity organization or government agency that can assist you.
