Weaning Off the Tube

We have decided to cut back baby N's tube feedings to 3 a day, spaced out about 6 hours. In between feedings, he can have baby food and juice by mouth. Last night when I fed him, he ate almost an entire jar of baby food and at least 1-2 oz of juice! All in about 20 minutes time! I topped him off with 2 oz of his formula/cereal mixture and his medicine and he was done!

Maybe he wasn't hungry enough to eat by mouth being fed every 4 hours(except overnight).

Last night was the most baby N has ever ate by mouth in one feeding. Way to go baby N! Keep up the good work!

    That's awesome - I'm so glad to hear he's doing well eating by mouth. It's so great that he was able to have his surgery while he's still so young!

    Before you know it, he'll be packing away the food by the plateful and asking for more!

    There will be dancing in the streets! Yippee. Having an adopted brother who spent most of his first year with a feeding tube, I know of which you speak. The day you can take it out and leave it out is one made for celebrating.
