My twins were early and I have one in the NCIU (Public) and the other in Special Care (Private) and I was travelling between the two to feed my babies! You know someone will always make a judgement, it doesn’t matter what it is over, but it is a sad truth. I was in hospital for 4 weeks with my twins (one week prior to their birth and 3 weeks after), my hubby was at the hospital as much as he possibly could be, whilst also caring for our 3 other boys and working. I remember one of the nurses said to my hubby (oh no, you cant possibly hold your baby, he has just gone to sleep – like wth), we took it straight to the head of Maternity and we were assured we could whenever we wanted (they are our babies). Just remember we do whatever we can and to the best of our ability (at the time). If we don’t have outside support, it seems people are too quick to judge.
