I haven't been on here in along time and one of the ladies just reminded me of that
Alli is doing really well now and is weighing a whole whopping 6lbs now She been home a couple weeks now and we are loving every minute of it! She is still on oxygen and apnea monitors though. Last Monday she had a pretty big set back though. She just stopped breathing and started turning blue. I was not home when it happened. My husband was home alone with her when it happened. He panicked and started CPR and called 911. Shortly after that I walked in and she had started breathing again. We live so far from town that they sent medi-flight out and flew her to the hospital. I rushed to the hospital to be with her and when we arrived we were told she could not be treated at that hospital. So they sent her by ambulance to another hospital where she was admitted for 3 days. She was released Wednesday evening and has had no more apnea episodes. She is doing great now.
Our only problem is changing her bottles. She likes the cheap disposable bottles that the hospital gave us, probably cause she was on them so long. I have bought the Dr. Browns, Playtex Nursers, and Tommee Tipper and have had no luck with any of them. Do you mommies have any suggestions?
Our hospital recommended Difrax bottles, and I will admit that the nipple seemed very similar to the hospital nipple. I took a quick look on Amazon, and they're available in the US, but they're kind of expensive. Tristan used it for a couple of weeks, but we found it took him a long time to finish a feed, so we switched to Avent Natural, which went a lot faster. Now he's pretty much EBF, but when we give him a little breastmilk in a bottle we use the Avent.
Good luck! I hope she continues to do well, and stays out of the hospital!
How scary! Glad she is okay now and I hope she doesn't have anymore episodes. Hopefully you'll find the right bottle for her soon. You can get Avent bottles anywhere. I actually just transitioned my little guy to Avent bottles and he takes them well
