Hi my son is premature like I have to start with my 9th month by 1st April but he was born by 23rd March. He was in nursery for 14 days. Overall he is f9 but lack in weight he is just 2kg 90 grms. Pls suggest useful information for my baby. He looks week. My son is not able to take breast feed directly I use to pump and give to him. Bsc he was not wd me in starting days. Know my feed is getting less day by day.

Gradually latch your baby and make sure you keep pumping.; That alone ensures proper supply. Massage your breasts and pump equally from both so that there are no engorgements.

Anshika first of all relax... Being a mom to a premature is challenging but yes you will do it so well. My son was born with just 2 kgs. He was in nicu for 17 days and had the same problems. He was not able to latch and was weak.
As of now keep pumping and feeding. But keep trying. Baby will take time to learn how to latch. Don't give bottles...Feed with spoon and make sure to feed every 2 hours.;
The more you feed the more is produced. So, I will suggest that pump every 2 hours and have healthy diet with lots of fluids. I know it's gonna be tiring but you will have to do it. It's only a matter of few months. And everything will b fine.
Also practice kangaroo therapy. This helps premature babies a lot. Take care...

Thanks so much all of u for ur support nice advice given by all.
