One thing I have learned through this whole bottle-drinking ordeal is that I will NEVER again take for granted feeding a baby a bottle. It seems so simple...suck, swallow, breathe....but that routine doesn't come easily for Olivia and it has changed the way I think about it all. Olivia has to be held a certain way during feedings, burped often and then held upright for several minutes after eating to see if she will throw up. It is a little overwhelming to think about but I know it will get easier for all of us in the coming days.
This is one of Olivia's sweet nurses patiently working with her to drink from the bottle.
This whole bottle thing really wears this girl out! She sleeps so hard after working at the bottle.
We are praying for several things this week: 1)the reflux will subside, 2)Olivia will continue to get comfortable with bottle feeding, 3)the swallow study will give the doctor some insight into what goes on while Olivia is eating. Thank you for following us and praying for us on this journey!
