We are going to try practicing a bottle with Jax today. I've made a plan with the speech therapist of how we will time turning off the feeding pump and everything. I wish I had higher hopes for this, but its hard since Jax still heaves often. But I'm determined to start trying!
Yesterday we took Jax to the hospital for some blood work to check his electrolytes. We want to see if we can drop the Sodium Chloride from his medication list. So we're waiting to get the word on that. We've decided to stay off the Reglan. His mood has improved, and he's pretty much physically the same.
Brady is still up at night now. He's always slept a perfect 8-10 hrs through the night. We're thinking its time to wein from the swaddle, but we're having a hard time with it. He cries being in the swaddle, but wakes himself up all night if his arms are left out - any advice out there? I've been playing white noise for him (sound of rain) gently in the background, and only have on a small nightlight. His humidifier had a very bright blue light that lit up the whole room. I was wondering if it was too much light for him. I've heard that babies may sometimes go through sleepless nights for 2 weeks during growth spurts. Hmmm....what else to do?
