Seamus has gained 8oz sense May 15ht but the doctor is still worried that he isn't getting enough nutrition or weight on him. So we are now having to give him 16-20oz whole milk and breast feed, hes been doing anywhere from 2-3x's a day on that, and no more then 8oz of water

Thanks for the update! Are you adding anything to his milk to boost the calories?

I would suggest adding some powdered milk to the milk he's drinking. My daughter gobbles it down just the same, so I'm sneaking in plenty of extra calories every day just by doing that. And yes, I butter the heck out of everything too!

I was going to applaud the 8 oz in a month, but I guess not! You are on the right track, it seems, at least. Keep it up!
