I plan on talking with the high risk and nutrition team next week about this, but wanted to run it by you guys first.
Stitch is supposed to be getting 876mls of formula a day. This increases 15 mls a week.
So this week he is supposed to be doing 140 Mls at 9am, 12pm, and 3pm.
Then at night he is supposed to be getting 38mls over a 12 hour period (From 6pm-6am).
His issue is that if I feed him at 9am, he throws up.
I tried yesterday (after feeding him about 30mls and him throwing up) waiting till closer to noon to give him is morning feeding and he was fine. I made up for the volume at night by increasing his feedings.
He used to be up to 50mls for 12 hrs at night, so the extra volume rate doesn't bother him.
Do you think (and I will ask the nutrition team of course) that it would be feasable to skip the 9am feeding all together, and make up for the volume at night? He doesn't act hungry after he wakes up in the morning, and is actually really fussy when I do his feeding.
I tried this again this morning and he didn't throw up.
What do you think??
