Hey Traci...sorry for the late response. I hope that your baby is sleeping and eating better for you. It can be a struggle I know. My little one had a horrible time with reflux also. She is now four and doing much better but it took until she was about 2. Your speech therapist is right...an hour long feeding is too long. He will start burning those precious calories you are getting into him. Do you use the fastest setting on the haberman? Are you squeezing it for him? I would be glad to chat with you anytime or see if I could help give you some feeding tips. I will put my email at the end of this message. Feel free to contact me. Just know that it does get better and there is light (and some sleep!!) at the end of the tunnel...hang in there! |
