By the next weekend we had gotten nowhere. He had been through all of the bottle and nipple types and shown very little improvement. Brody was taking as little as 5ml to 10ml over a 30 minute period.
At this point I remember saying, this is the best place to be. If we went home, we would be sent back to the hospital for Brody failing to thrive. We were in the right place for us at the time. Plus, as first time parents it was kind of nice having the extra care!
By the start of the next week it was starting to wear on me that Brody wasn’t making improvements with his feedings.
Leaving the hospital without him every night “wasn’t fair”.
