Every Ounce Makes a Difference

Abigail has been slowly drinking a few more ounces each day. We aren't back to her minimum 28oz., but she is adding a few ounces each day. An additional 1 to 2 ounces per day seems minimal until you are faced with the task of trying to get your child to eat. These gradual additions are huge!! Those 1 to 2 ounces are the difference between a feeding tube and "by mouth" feedings. I'll take a slow uphill climb any day to avoid placing that feeding tube back down her nose again!
