Day 20

Poor little Dexter worked so hard this morning and only got 11 ml of milk! He sure has the feeding squad stumped as to what to try to get him to make progress again. Since Wednesday, we had been very gradually thinning his milk to try and help him get more milk per suck, but it doesn't really seem to be working. The speech pathologist suggested we go back to the full nectar consistency and just let him practice to improve his suck and pacing.

I know you tried the nipples with more holes, and he didn't do well, but now that he is breathing and eating at the same time, maybe you could try it again?? Just a sugestion, We love you.

Oh, Monette, I'm sorry! What a long process. How are you holding up, dividing your time between home and the hospital?
