Stressful Week

For the last week, we have been working hard to ensure Lucas drinks enough formula. A normal baby drinks 5 – 6 times a day with 5 ounces at a time. Over the last
week, Lucas drinks 12 – 15 times a day with 2 ounces at a time. From 7am to 7pm, we feed Lucas every hour to make sure he has enough formula to avoid being brought to the hospital due to dehydration or lack of nourishment. We’re confident another stricture has formed since he’s eating so little at each feeding and crying during feeds because it hurts. Lucky for us, the next dilatation is scheduled for Tuesday. Just in time.

Lucas loves his new toy! He is passing it back and forth between his hands. Of course, he enjoys sucking on the toy too!
