The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie

So much food for such a little person…

Posted on: December 7, 2004

Shoshanna’s up to 37 ml of food every 3 hours. Being a baby, her routine consists of sleeping, getting her diaper and sometimes her clothes changed, and eating. And most of the time she spends sleeping is also time spent digesting, which is a big task for her. Her tummy is getting so full that it makes it harder for her to breathe because it’s smooshing her lungs. She’s growing well, though, and will adjust to the increased food in a couple of days (she’s always had an adjustment period when they up her feeds, and she’s gone up 4 ml in 72 hours). She’s 1915 grams now (just about 4 pounds, 4 ounces), but isn’t quite ready to come out of her isolette. She still gets a little bit chilly, and since she’s getting all her food from the bottle she’s out of the isolette 8x/day for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. She’ll get there… gotta get a little more meat on her bones, is all.
