Had Rowan in again because his feed are taking longer and longer and now he's doing huge vomits. The doctor still just wants to wait and see. However, reading between the lines as we talked about going back to breast the outlook does not look good. He's a poor nurser. He has too weak of a suck. The doctor says that he should be finishing a bottle in no more than 15 minutes. Breastfeeding is very hard. If Rowan is struggling to feed well on a bottle then the breast will be impossible.

He weighs 6lb 8.5oz now which hopefully means he'll weigh 7lbs by next week. I meet with the LC on Friday. I'm going to ask her to be frank. If he won't nurse ever then it's time to stop pumping. If there is still a good chance that he will nurse then I want to start breast training him now. I just feel like that the window for nursing him is closing.
