We still need continued improvement and a stronger gag, also we need coordinated movement of the food to the back of the mouth to swallow. And if we want to be ambitious and avoid the g-tube surgery then we also need to quickly start nippling all of our feedings.
The Speech therapist postponed Monday's 2pm appt to Tuesday, so I'll be meeting with her at 2pm Tuesday. Some topics for discussion are smaller feedings before oral stimulation to encourage him to be hungry and try, as Saturday's sucking for 10 minutes was on a feeding that was an hour late. Maybe give him the same quantity of food at 6 feedings instead of 8. Maybe do a smaller feeding 40cc before working with him to take a bottle. Another topic is letting him nipple, or attempt to nipple his feeding, also possibly after a smaller feeding prior.
Also, I do read the comments religiously, so if you have questions you want answered feel free to post a question in the comments, or feel free to email me directly too.
