One of the nurses told me a funny story about how her baby had a "princess bum." Every time the baby had the tiniest dirty diaper, the nurse said, the baby would scream until someone changed it for her.
Well, I'm noticing that Miss Brynn has a princess tongue. Her bottle is warmed in a special, expensive hospital warmer that makes the temperature just right and the heating even all the way through (it takes like 20 minutes to heat up and it's really annoying). Unfortunately, it's only barely warm enough so it cools quickly. Brynn has just started eating about 15-20 CCs before she won't have anything to do with the bottle. By happenstance, we were feeding her from two different bottles one feeding. She took 15 CCs from the first and then wouldn't drink any more. When we started in on the second bottle right out of the warmer, she took 20 CCs more. Hmmmm.
The next time we fed her, we tried the same trick with just one bottle. Picture this: she drank 30 CCs. She refused the bottle. We re-warmed it. She drank 20 CCs. She refused the bottle. We re-warmed it. She drank the final 10 CCs for a grand total of 60 CCs! Funny girl.
Looks like from now on we'll have to have two bottles--one for drinking, and one in the warmer! We wouldn't want her princess tongue to have to touch cool milk now would we?
