Hey everyone - we just brought home our now 35-week-old son yesterday after a month in the NICU. He's been getting breastmilk by breast or bottle (or gavage) the whole time. When he takes it from the bottle (or gavage, before) it was supplemented with HMF.
He did have some trouble with reflux and O2 saturations after eating, and most of the time he was there his bed was at an angle so his head was higher. The night before we brought him home they laid him flat again and said he did fine.
So, now he's home (not even 24 hours) and he's been grunty and noisy all night when he's sleeping. I don't remember him being like this in the hospital - he seemed to be a lot quieter - but of course, we weren't there 24/7.
My question is - have any of you had this issue? Was it the angle of sleep? The HMF? Should I knock dairy out of my diet and see if that's it?
Right now he's breastfeeding every other feeding, and taking a bottle for the others - 8 feedings a day. He's such a champ - can't wait to BF exclusively...
