Any advice? Feeling pretty rough. Was going to express some milk so DH can help with feeding. About 100mls a feed? Thank you x

Poor you sad your baby is v little so I would only try him/her with small feeds (so you don't waste the expressed milk) if s/he drinks it all then your dh can give some more. I would start with 1-2oz at a time and more if wanted. I'm not an expert at all but neither of my two would take more than 2-3oz ebm max at a time and often less.

Have you tried feeding lying down? Your dh could bring the baby to you and then take him/her away after the feed, might help you a bit.
