I’m sitting at the third feed of the day at the feeding clinic. Each morning Ben weighs Josiah – unfortunately this morning (the first morning when we have not done 3 night feeds) Josiah had lost 6oz from the day before. Which wasn’t great, however I think that was as a result of night feeding which is usually not a possibility for most people. Ben has now changed his strategy a little with Josiah and tomorrow we start at 6am and will continue at 11am 4pm and 8pm.
It seems quite a journey that we are on. He is already a lot more receptive to taking water from a cup when we try to feed him. Once the calorie intake is increased and the defenses are broken down somewhat Ben will train us to feed Josiah in a similar way – he said that Josiah will probably play some of the same tricks – then we will go to different locations and feed Josiah in all locations so that he will eat in all places… we have quite a way to go. Although looking a Josiah now he is a lot calmer now than he was on the first day.We will see what tomorrow brings.
