I just posted a discussion on this very thing!!! I completely understand your stress. My son isn't interested in eating either. He will do a bottle here or there but will not consistently take a full feeding by bottle. The OT therapist thinks he doesn't like the taste/texture of something so he is losing interest in eating. She seems to think he is just getting bored. Have you tried different bottles? Its so frustrating to not be able to just take them home!!!!!! Hopefully your little man improves soon!View Thread
gave birth at 33 weeks 2days. My son was born very healthy. In fact he never even required oxygen. He has also never set off any of his alarms in the NICU. The only thing I am waiting on is him learning how to feed, which most preemies have to learn! The good thing is that little girls catch on to this A LOT faster than little boys from what I have heard. I would say that your little one will do good too!!View Thread
