Un día muy esperado

Qué creen? Me acabo de dar cuenta que no puedo postear fotos desde el trabajo!!! No me pienso desanimar... solo debo re-organizarme para robarle la computadora a Juan José unos minutos para hacerlo en las noches. SI SE PUEDE!

Ahora para lo importante, avances de Nati: Hoy tuvimos una cita que esperamos 6 meses para conseguir, la cita con la mejor Gastrolinteróloga del Children's Hospital al que llevamos a mi pulguita. Para mi fue un enorme logro conseguirlo. Fuí la pero pesadilla de la encargada de agendar las citas, con decirles que lo tenía agendado en mi Outlook como cita todos los lunes hablar para ver si había alguna cancelación. Es mas, aveces me emocionaba y hablaba los jueves tambien!!! jejejeje ;) ¡lo que no hace una mamá con una meta fija!

Nos fue excelente mente bien. Le van a cambiar la formula a Nutramin Jr (creo que así se llama) que es una fórmula con más calorías mas adecuada para su edad. Le aumentaron su medicina para su constipación al 8mls al día. ¿alguien sabía que el platano extriñe? duh! (yo no, jejeje)
Pues no mas plátano o manzana por un tiempo. MAS MANGO!!

I am glad that you got in to see the GI specialist, and it sounds like the visit went well.

Ben is on a mixture of Nutren Jr and Enfacare infant formula, and we are gradually switching him completely over to Nutren Jr.

My mom always said that mangoes were good for slow bowels!

Hey Sony, Natalia is doing great! She´s such a sweetheart. You and Juan are doing a great job. I love the idea of keeping up to date with Natalia's advancements with your blog. ;D

Karen, Nati's been on Isomil (soy) since the NICU. Our GI recommended changing one feeding the first day, see how that goes. Next day change 2 and the day after that change her 3 bolus feeds. She told us to wait till the end to change the night feed, she's on 30mls for 10 hrs at night. To be honest I am nervous. It really is amazing the amount of gas she can produce. What has your experience been with Nutren Jr?

When we first changed formula, we tried a 50/50 mixture of Nutren Jr and infant formula. It didn't go well at all. Ben was extremely gassy, cried in pain, needed to be vented frequently from the G-tube, didn't digest it well, and was constipated for days. So we decreased the proportion of Nutren Jr to about 25%. He tolerated that without any problems. Slowly, we have been increasing the amount of Nutren Jr in his feeds, and he has been tolerating that OK. Right now we are at a 60% proportion of Nutren Jr with 40% infant formula, and have no problems. In a few months, we should be off the infant formula altogether. We have had to be very patient.
I hope the transition is easier for Natalia!
