Tube-free Stella: Day 8

Stella finished four bottles today! I believe it was her best day, in terms of how much she ate, since the tube came out.

I weighed her today and it appears she’s lost three ounces since Friday, and weight loss isn’t something a new mom likes to see, but I am truly not worried. Her eating is improving and I have no doubt that she will get to where she needs to be, and soon. Actually, she is where she needs to be right now. It’s a period of transition. She is not used to feeling so much hunger, or driving her own intake. Stella is doing a fantastic job adjusting to a whole new paradigm!
