I used to feed her about 175 mLs every four hours - at 9am, 1pm, 5pm, and 9pm. It took about an hour to feed her (on a good day) but she was doing really well and tolerating all the force-feeding really well. The thing about having a baby who's been tube-fed for her entire life is that she really has no idea what it means, or feels like, to be hungry.
Since her visit to the doctor last week I've been trying to squeeze another feeding into Ruthe's day. It's not really that hard, but it's altered our schedule quite dramatically. Especially the waking up part... this is what her schedule looks like now:
7am -- breakfast + meds
11am -- second breakfast
3pm -- lunch
7pm -- dinner + meds
11pm -- elevensies
Because I think her doctor is training her to become a hobbit, and eat seven times a day.
