Can you please help me with a few questions.
I had a lady deliver early at 25 weeks gestation and we have a long haul in NICU. Both babies are doing really well at the moment. One is 705 g the other is 560 g.
1. Can you tell me where you got micro preemie diapers from or did you just get from the hospital - we have to supply here.
2. Did you have to buy breast milk fortifier and if so which brand and where from - its a 6 week waiting list from here - ridiculous I know.
3. Any other things I will need down the line and should order now as its in Asia an things are not readily available.
This is a case that the parents are not around and can not be around for the next few weeks. The lady who delivered is prepared to give breast milk at the moment but how long I can persuade her to do that is another question.
I know R wasn't a micro premmie but we used pampers on R as they were extra small whereas the huggies newborn were much bigger.
King Edward Memorial Hospital in Subiaco here in W.A. have a breastmilk bank. Contact them and see if something can be arranged... its just a thought.
Also, ask them what they use for their micropremmies e.g. diapers. ASk S what her twinnies are using.
here are some websites as well:
www.austprem.org.au (I can't access this site for whatever reason. You might like to contact them and ask about the above).

Site above ships huggies premmie nappies. (note not micropremmies but from 2-4kgs).
Huggies neo-natal nappies available here but looks like most of the suppliers are Mothercare... do you have Mothercare in Malaysia if so ask them if they supply the premmie huggie nappies.
