Kayden went to bolus feeds on Sunday and was able to try a bottle yesterday. It took him a few minutes for him to get the hang of a bottle again since it has been about a month since he has had one. About the time he got the hang of taking a bottle again, it went down the wrong pipe. We were supposed to try again today but he started throwing up and having very loose stools all night and all morning. The doctors think he might have been having withdrawals because they weaned his sedation from .3cc to .23cc supposedly babies takes weaning very rough and it sometimes takes a longer time to wean them. He is on pedialyte for the day and they are going to start him on similac sensitive tomorrow to see if the lactose formula may help him keep it down. If all goes well tonight he will resume his bottle feeding tomorrow with added thickener so maybe it will go down the right pipe. Prayers for a good night please.
