Preem versus Term Feeding!!!

Is it just me or have you noticed that premature babies feed more often than full gestation babies or does it just feel like they feed loads more? I was speaking to my neonatal nurse about this and she said its because their tummy is tiny and therefore can only feed so much at a time, hence why you may notice the sometimes frequent feeds. So just in case you are in the same boat as me and have a little preem, I know how tiresome it gets waking up at night and the constant feeding. Hang in there….. It’s well worth it. 😃
