So Emmett has been taking between 6 and 8 ounces daily since Friday. Still not up to the 10 minimum that he needs to be at, but this amount seems to be enough to keep him peeing a minimal amount and still crying tears.
And oh, there have been a lot of tears. This is not a happy boy – he’s got to be feeling like dog-doo, after all. But its wearing me down…especially the 4am feedings. I’d be okay being up several times a night if he was drinking good then, but all of that effort – waking up, getting out of a warm bed, warming up the bottle, trying to get to sleep afterwards – for him to drink 1 ounce is most definitely NOT FUN.
So that’s where I’m at.
