In addition to its possible effects on the baby, tobacco use can interfere with milk let-down (milk ejection reflex) and it may reduce the amount of milk you produce. If you cannot stop using tobacco products, consider a low-nicotine variety and smoke immediately after breastfeeding, as the amount of nicotine in your milk decreases over two to three hours. :? 8-) ;) :) :D

Let the physician and your baby's nurses know that you would like to breastfeed as soon as your baby is ready to begin feeding by mouth. In general, a baby must be able to suck-swallow-breathe in a coordinated way to take food by mouth. :idea: :? :D

A baby's condition should be stable so the baby can physically handle an in arms feeding. :shock: :oops: :?: :ugeek:

A baby first displays rhythmic sucking on a pacifier, feeding tube, etc., in brief bursts of more than one suck per second. :cry: :D :idea:

At about 32 weeks gestation, a baby will begin to display bursts of sucking, and around 34 weeks a rhythmic suck-swallow-breathe pattern develops. :arrow: :evil: 8-) :)

A baby must remain awake - from drowsy to quiet alert to active - for brief periods, to feed by mouth. :lol: ;) :) 8-)

A baby must be able to tolerate touch to the mouth area and demonstrate the reflexes needed for oral feeding, such as rooting, sucking, cough, and gag reflexes. :( :x :o :P :oops: :shock:

Breastfeeding is usually less stressful for a high-risk infant, because the baby sets the pace - both for an individual feeding and for the process of learning to feed effectively. :lol: ;) :( :x

A baby's heart and respiratory rates, oxygen saturation level, and body temperature tend to remain more stable, and often improve, during breastfeeding. This stability of physical systems means breastfeeding takes less energy and it is less work for the high-risk baby. :idea: :cry: :? :D

Your baby must actually latch-on and actively suck to get milk during breastfeeding, and this may take time for a baby to learn. When bottle-feeding, milk drips in the baby's mouth and a baby must swallow it, ready or not. :evil: 8-) :) ;) :lol: :twisted:
