Deb the magician gave us some homework to do with Ali. Deb the magician is Ali's speech therapist. Her mission in life right now is to get Ali off the feeding machine. Our homework is to continue to provide Ali with stimulation to re-train her to eat. This morning, I did the routine that includes dipping a pacifier in formula and giving to Ali, then give her a few swallows of formula from a bottle and chase it down with some pacifier.
Ali and I did this to the tune of one ounce of formula from a bottle. Yeeeee-HAW!
That's great considering a normal feeding from the machine gives Ali about three ounces of formula in an hour. Ali does this all quite naturally.
Good job, Girlie.
