thanks for commenting. I believe i even commented on your post when (Owen?? i believe) had his last surgery... you were asking how to explain to him what was happening..(something along those lines)
Cooper has an incomplete unilateral lip and cleft palate. He's feeding from a haberman right now and doing okay. Well i should say hes doing well cause he's almost gaining an ounce a day. Just being that I have twins (the other one is gaining almost 2 ounces a day) I feel like he is behind. He is the smaller twin. They were born at 34 wks and 5 days so preemies which give him another slight disadvantage for him. He gets tired after 15 minutes of feeding. Sometimes he doesnt take his full feeding.
Did you ever have any feeding issues and how did you overcome them? How did you "keep your cool" about the whole situation?
Both boys also have to get blood drawn to have their thyroid tested at 2,4,6 weeks. Did they do anything to test for brain development issues?
