My son was born when I was 6 month & 1 week pregnant. He had the typical NICU things to resolve, but has done pretty good. He weighed 2 lb. 4 oz. and now weighs 5 lb. 2 oz. Due to his being so early & other factors, I was not able to pump, so when he was ready, he went on formula via a g-tube. He is now almost 2 months old, and still in the NICU but in the special care nursery. For the past two weeks they have been trying the bottle. It has been a struggle. Also, for the past 2-3 weeks, he has been very gassy with some stomach cramps and some constipation. He will take some of his bottle and stop, and they have to pour the rest down his tube. I talked to the doctor about him being so 'uncomfortable' with his stomach problems, and he agreed to switched my son to his 'going home' formula. The first formula was high in extra nutrients, which he needed during his first couple of months. He definitely seems more comfortable. But last night he just lost interest in his bottle, after taking a little bit. Has anyone dealt with this before? He is about 36 weeks gestational age right now, and I've heard that it could take him up to his due date of Nov. 8th, to really catch on......Or would anyone know of any other reason he doesn't like his bottle.....has the stomach cramps and gas and constipation? He doesn't always have the constipation.....some days he really fills his diaper with no assistance. He has to be able to take all his feeds by bottle before he can go home. Any helpful tips? It is always something to worry about with a baby in the NICU. Surely we can overcome this too?????
