Baby Jai milestone!

Jai had a lactation appointment today, and with the help of the consultant (who found a type of bottle that works for him) Jai drank two whole ounces of milk from a bottle today in 30 minutes! He has been fed with a feeding tube (G-tube, itís called) since birth, so this is a huge deal. Two ounces is half a feeding. We now have hope that he will eventually take all his food by mouth and be able to have the G-tube removed.

His mama has been working so hard to have enough breast milk for all his feedings. She has been practicing with him to try breastfeeding every day at nearly every feeding...but he never gets more than a few swallows of milk from her that way. Ideally he will learn to breastfeed, but bottle feeding will be much simpler than tube feeding in terms of his portability.

Of course, for now, he will get some of his feeding by bottle and then finish up via G-tube, which is extra work...but hopefully he will progress to feeding only by bottle or breast.

They had an evaluation with early intervention last week, and will have their first meeting with them on Friday.

Thereís a constellation of services through the hospital: lactation, nutrition, neurology, PT, OT, and more. And she is having visits from the visiting nurse a couple times a week as well.

Basically any time that does not include pumping or feeding is time she probably has an appointment somewhere!
