We are absolutely over the moon that we’re now attempting to bottle feed him. After birth he latched on quickly and easily, but after 2 weeks of non activity, it takes him a few days to get into the swing of things. He surprises me by latching, and latching well, the day or the day before we go home.
He still has a line to his stomach in case the bottle feeding doesn’t go well or goes too slowly, they’ll put it through to his stomach directly to prep the stomach for food in the coming days.
As with many surgeries, he is quite swollen, and now that he’s super chubby at 4 months, he kind of looks llike he hasn’t changed that much.
