Need Help w/ Feeding
I'm the works of getting a referral for Oral Motor OT for Marissa's bottle feeding issues. She used to take a bottle until she was about 4 mo. old. Once she had her surgery, we were able to strictly breast feed because she no longer had weight gain issues (i.e. see chubby legs in previous posts). Now, I am feeding her solids once a day and breast feeding the rest of the time. However, we just started daycare and she can't go all day without milk so we need this referral. OR....Can anyone out there can give me some advice on how to get her to bottle feed? I would sincerely appreciate the advice.
In addition to my exercise today, Marissa had PT. Krista, her therapist, was so happy to see her sitting independently. I should have brought my little video though because Marissa was being quite a pill and only did it at the very beginning of the session. I swear she cried for 45 minutes of an hour long session! I felt so bad for Marissa and especially for Krista! She worked hard though and had a good 3 minutes of supported crawling position. yeah for Marissa's strong arms!
