hi ruth i know she will eat if she is hungry but i tell you she can go for days without drinking much she drinks maybe 50mls per bottle . i wish i could have breast feed her but her palatte restricted her from doing so .i need to keep her hydrated cause everynow and then her nappies come out dry . my first daughter was the same but she was constipated all the time so i didn't want that to happen this time around

My son Jordan was born with just a cleft lip. He had his op at Salisbury hospital, at the time is was the most terrifing time of my life. Now 4 years on I can't believe I was that stupid. I have even spoken to a mum who's daughter has a cleft lip just like Jordan's and her op in a month, and she feels just the same as I did, and it was nice to be able to say that there is nothing to worry about, I hope she takes in the things I said to ease her mind on the day.
