YES, I am breast feeding the boys.
I pump around the clock and take my milk to the hospital for them. They are too young to actually suck & swallow, so they are getting my milk through a feeding tube right now.
When we "kangaroo hold" them they do root and try to suck. It is so cute and at the same time it is interesting how instinctive they are even at a premature age.
When they are 32 weeks or around then, we will start introducing nipple feeding with a bottle, they still won't be strong enough to take the breast, but it will be nice to be able to hold them and feed them ourselves.
Here are some photos of the boys at 6 days old...
