Our daughter Mackenzie is 10 weeks old. Snce we brought her home from the NICU she has not eaten like she was and should be. Shes been home for the last 5 weeks. she s only drinking at most an ounce and a half. On a good day she will drink 2-3 ounces at least once. She is so cranky im starting to have a hard time being patient. she sleeps for maybe an hour, if im lucky she will sleep for almost 3. I know the poor thing has to be hungry and if not then she is in pain from the NEOSURE. But its what she was drinking while in the NICU so there shouldnt be a reason she wont drink it.
I asked the dr last week if we could switch her formula and to be honest he didnt even ask me why or how is she acting when drinkin it. He said absolutely not its the best for her right now. okay I get that but you dont know what goes on at home. on top of her supposedly being colic, we just want her to feel better and not cry the entire time she is awake.... I dont know what to do. daddy says that if the dr doesnt seem interested at all or change it then we are changing drs. shes to fragile to not take care of properly..
