My LO was in the NICU for 30 days and has been home now for 6 week. Was not preemie but was intubated for 2 weeks and on an NG feeding tube the whole time. We took him off the tube a few days after he got home. He is still drinking less than he should (drinks 27 Cal formula to compensate), falls asleep during almost every feed and we struggle to get it down (I guess not that uncommon), but more importantly, his appetite is not increasing. He IS gaining weight, slowing down now, but the thought that he could drink 4 oz in one sitting seems like an impossible dream.
How long did your baby struggle with feeding, and when your LO transitioned, was it like flipping a switch or gradual?
