...did the NICU residents start talking feeding tubes?
Our girls hit 39 weeks tomorrow, and while one is consistently taking well over half of her feeds by mouth, the other hardly takes any. Granted, she's been battling non stop congestion, for which she's been worked up three times and all is normal, but that has limited the number of bottle attempts she's been given. That said, she's just a sleepy baby, with not many wakeful periods at this point. I will let her stay here as long as they will allow to learn to bottle feed, but I really don't see her building the endurance or having the energy anytime soon. As much as I hate the thought of a feeding tube, I also realize it is such a minor hiccup relative to everything we could have faced...but, trying to be realistic, and knowing they won't let her just camp out here forever. What were your experiences?
