Marathon Feeding 2

Christie called back immediately; I was on my cell and the phone conversation was so frustrating because I kept on losing her and she would have to re-call. This was what she recommended us to do start a feeding schedule that includes lots of short feeds every 2 hours. Place him on the first breast until he is done then move to the second breast until he is done then back to the first but this time top up with formula (up to one ounce using the again the small little tube). She said it was up to us to make the decision to use the formula; however if we did not his jaundice would most likely not get better and having Christophe admitted to the hospital is not something any of us want.

Will post more shortly.

Good luck with the marathon feeding and the SNS (feeding formula with a tube). Been there done that, I know it's not fun. Within no time you guys will be back on track!
