Since midnight, Emmett has taken about 5 ounces of formula…its about 8pm here now, so I figure he’ll take about 1-2 ounces before midnight tonight. Not enough…but much better than the first 12 hours went, yes?
He has been incredibly fussy today, which is no surprise, I guess, considering how much less nutrition he’s getting. And of course he won’t eat when he’s upset, so what we do is rock him until he falls asleep, then try to get him to drink.
He’s still urinating a bit, and still crying tears…so no trip to the ER for dehydration yet.
Maybe he’ll do better tomorrow?
Oh, but not nearly as much vomiting, seeing as how he has next to nothing in his stomach. But the heaving has been better too, which makes me think that the NG tube was irritating him. Its also pretty nice not to have to deal with all the equipment and fuss that goes along with every feeding with the tube.
