we saw our nutritionist yesterday..
She is AMAZING!!
She basically confirmed that i was right...Ds was supposed to stop drinking the soy formula, and only drink the Peptamen.
So she tweaked the food schedule, and added a high cal powder called Duocal..which is 42 cals per TABLESPOON.
so he gets
3 cans peptamen a day
1 jar baby food dinner w/2 TBS Duocal
1 jar fruit w/2 TBS Duocal
and one half to 3/4 cup of baby cereal a day!
That's it! that is so many calories he's sure to grow!
And the best news is that in ten days, he grew almost half a pound, and his head grew a teeny tiny bit..which we are thrilled about
The bad news is that his peptamen is now up to $720 a month..
To give you an idea, that is more than our rent payment per month by $120..
We were struggling so hard to get all that formula down him, plus the med food, plus food and cereal..no wonder the little boy was miserable. Duh.i was mad when i read the Dr's report!
we are now on our easy management food diet! and we go back in 2.5 weeks to see the gastro doc, who will hear about how he needs to be sure to give freaking info when he prescribes something...
and we go back and see the nutritionist in a month. Woohoo!
