julianna is now 7pds 10ozs and 19 ? long. she has a hernia in her belly button but she says it should heal on it's own. she kept her zantac the same. we spoke about my concerns on feeding and from what she observed she clearly gulps to much during a feeding which gives her more gas and belly issues. she does the same thing at the breast. I got approved from the insurance company and got my ready to feed formula yesterday ..

so she wants me to stop breast feeding , she gave me a new bottle to try and if that doesn't help she suggested buying a premmie nipple to help with the flow and for me to call her next week if things don't look better

Wow, she's a peanut! She doesn't look that tiny in pictures Smile sorry about all the feeding issues. I went through some of that with tori and it stunk. I hope you find a solution soon.

I'm glad to hear you got cleared with the insurance company, that's sucks overall though and I hope this helps the poor little munchkin.

K was a slow gainer and it was SO stressful. 16 lbs at 1 year! Yikes. I hope your peanut catches up soon.

M doesn't have a very good latch and I think that is adding to his gas...inhaling all that air. We burp him all the time but he still gets painful tummy gas. Poor guy. I hope your wee one improves soon!

She loves the ready to feed formula and boy does it smell better than the powder. She drank 4ozs i gave her 2 and she screamed for more gave her another and she was not happy until she got 1 more ounce..but my boobs are killing me..i hate drying my milk...as much as im excited for her to feel better Im sad to stop breastfeeding
