Homecoming Hiccups

Baby Tess is doing great. In fact, she's a regular chow-hound. Now that she's off the strict NICU feeding schedule, she's drinking 2-3 ounces of milk every 90 minutes. After a month in the NICU, I can't get her interested in regular breastfeeding yet. Baby Tess will do some nibbling but when she's really hungry, she wants the good stuff (my breastmilk) straight from the bottle. I'm having trouble keeping ahead of her in pumping and feeding.

Anyone have any encouraging stories of "difficult moments in breastfeeding that were overcome" to share?
