from bad to worse

Well the day continued to get even worse with Enya only drinking 35ml at the next meal too. I honestly don't know what to do with her. The micropreemie support group that I belong to are always warning that force feeding is a good way to set up oral aversions, but at the same time we have summer temperatures here (finally!!) and Enya needs to be taking in more than 300ml of liquids on a warm day. I am already trying to get extra fluid in by making her solids more runny but when it's too runny then it gets very difficult to give on a spoon.

The first feed today has gone well, but it is usually the next 2 feeds that are difficult so we will see.

I hope she starts eating again!

Have you tried offering it to her more frequently? I'm sure you have, it's just all I can THINK of. Babies need to come with troubleshooting guides.
