A woman I used to work with had a baby that also had awful acid reflux, and allergies as well. She finally found a formula made from organic goat's milk that the baby could keep down and thrive on.
Because Mckinlee was swept away right after birth, Brit never got a chance to breast feed. Now she is having to pump to get things "working". She is pumping every 3-4 hours but nothing is really coming out yet. They said it would take about 3 days to get all systems going again. That is what they are waiting on. She can't let Mckinlee breast feed (to help her body more) because they need to know exactly how much she is getting. I don't know I am getting all confused about it now.
Glen just came from the hospital and said that she kept down her last feeding (when he was there). I haven't called yet because there are a lot of her friends there now.
Yes, Joyce. I am very worried and feel helpless. Especially seeing her in that box. But I know that she could be so much worse and I am very, very thankful that she is healthy other than the problems she is experiencing now. I can't imagine what Bristol is feeling. It just breaks my heart.
