I'm 40w3d today. My hospital requires a (minimum) 5 day stay for the baby to monitor him for withdrawals. I'm planning on staying with him as long as needed to breastfeed, so I was curious about other experiences people have had with that.
Did anyone exclusively breastfeed? I don't want to pump if I can avoid it.
What was it like staying in the NICU to feed every couple of hours? They said I can stay there for as long as he's there (sleeping in a chair), which sounds miserable, but not as miserable as leaving him, and I want to do what's best for him.

I'm sorry that no one got back to you to answer your question!

How are you and the baby doing now?

Many hospitals have housing options for parents or SO's of patients. Ronald McDonald House, locally we have the Gerieke house. A social worker should be able to assist you.
Many NICU's have rooming in (or nearby) options as well.
Many advocate for breast feeding if you are only on buprenorphine.
hope all is well.
