Let's get back to our regularly scheduled posting...
Dylan just took 95mls of Enfamil AR formula!
Now the irony is not lost upon me that I am pumping as I type this while he chugs away on formula, but if it's the answer, I'll take it!
His previous record was 70mls of breast milk set last night. He beat it by almost an ounce! His 3 hour minimum is 67 and 4 hour minimum is 88. I do think be could potentially do the same with breast milk, but the AR is thicker which prevents bradys so I am perfectly happy with trying it for now. I will probably try to go back to breast milk after we get home.
The key was letting him "sleep eat" over about an hour. Both times he took. 30-40 immediately, then pooped out and fell asleep. When I heard him smacking his lips, I laid him on his side and kept going. It totally worked and didn't seem to use too much energy.
My nurse almost cried. (She's my favorite...she treats Dylan like he's her own son.) when I told some other nurses at the station they cheered out loud, one raising her hands in the air :).
Surgery is still set for Wednesday just in case but maybe, just maybe...
