When the post was shared on Reddit, the OP thought that Liz was feeding the baby. However, it was a nurse. In the comments section, one person seemed confused saying, “What are they feeding the baby and why an adult metal spoon? I’m so confused.”
Another commenter also wondered what was going on, noting “I’m a bit confused with the spoon feeding milk.”
Is it Something To Worry About?
In the comments, various people who worked or used to work in the NICU calmed alarmed TLC fans down.
- I’m assuming Liz had a cesarean. The recommendation would be to feed baby within the first hour (golden hour) of being born to stimulate milk production and baby’s digestive system moving. Sometimes after cesarean, it’s just not possible. That’s when hand expression into a spoon happens! Milk stimulation happens, baby gets fed, win win!
- NICU nurse. Can confirm this is very common. We use spoons and 1mL syringes when mom is only getting very small amounts of colostrum in the beginning.
- Get that colostrum into baby by [any]means possible!!! Especially if the hospital staff were worried about the baby’s blood sugar. Newborns sometimes have issues with milk transfer at first and this is the best way to make sure they are getting what they need. Usually, this is done following a nursing session.
