Default Re: 14 Learning to lick from a plate.

I think I find myself to quick with the tube its easier and quicker, I got in 110 gram babies the other day and I tubed them for the first few days they are finally excepting milk from a syringe and eating there gruel and yogurt at night, but nothing threw the day on there own so, I offer them formula from a syringe. I am always afraid of weight loss.

I did start my little ones dish licking milk at 35 grams this year I usually wait to 45 to 50 grams, I am a bit of a over protective mom, I want everyone to get there full amount. And no one to steal from them Thatís why everyone sits on there own plate.

That's a good strategy and not overprotective at all! Everybody has their set of guidelines which is important.

I personally find tubing so invasive, can't help it. So I avoid it when ever possible, but I will and have been doing it when necessary.
