Yesterday, this beautiful 3 lb 11.5 oz, now 9 day baby girl came to us with her mama for assistance. Little M was referred to us by another organization, her mother is just 16 years old and needs help to care for her first child. Her mother said Little M would not take the breast so she had not fed her for the first week of her life. She can take a bottle, but only takes a little at a time. We are giving her supplemental feeds through the tube in her nose. Mama is working very hard to make milk for her little one, right now she is pumping frequently and we are hoping some good nutrition will help Mama's milk come in more.
Please pray for both mama and baby as they start this new life together.
