Non Nutritional Feeds

December 5, 2009

Yesterday was a good day!...I was able to do non nutritional feeds which means I had to pump but then was able to nurse Dylan. He did better then expected, he latched on pretty well and sucked for a good ten minutes. He was able to get some milk because your body produces milk constantly but its not an overwhelming amount that would cause him to choke.

Today I was able to try again...two times. He did really well again!! So we are really happy about that.

He is also on 30z of milk every three hours and is almost 10 pounds. We couldn't be happier with all his progress. Although the doctors still want to sit and meet with us to discuss the option of a g tube. Its something we are contemplating and don't know which decision to make since he hasn't been given an opportunity to really feed (suck and swallow). I guess when that happens we may have a better idea of what to do.

Thank you for all your support and prayers. God Bless.
