First the stats:
-He weighed 5lb7oz..big for his gest age i think
-He is breathing room air and sleeping in an isolette
-He came off his IV on sunday
Now the questions:
-He is trying bottles now. They are doing one bottle per day and only allowing him 30 mins to take it. is this normal? he could only eat 22cc/40 cc in his 30 minutes this morning. what he doesnt finish in the bottle they put in his gi tube. it seems like he may just need longer than 30 minutes.
-for those who have been in this situation, how long did it take for your baby to go from one bottle per day to all bottles?
-he has been in NICU for one week and one day, any idea how much longer i should anticipate him being there?
