Bad news though was he failed 3 hearing tests in his right ear so we have to take him to the neonatal audiologist to have it followed up.

    What oh what is an "oral eating aversion"???? My little IUGR miss doesn't eat- never has- drives me up the wall! She exists purely on prescription formuls! If you have an explanation for it, please share!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sara Edward has an oral aversion and it basicly means they dont like things/food going in their mouth, they can be very sensitive to texture, have and over sensitve gag reflex and need to feel in control about what goes in their mouth.

    Edward has been seeing the feeding clinic at the Mater for his oral aversion and we have made some progress.

    Glad to hear things are looking up!! We are seeing speech path/dietician (feeding clinic) on Friday so hopefully things may be on the up and up for my little lady!! The only thing that stops me going insane is that she still drinks 2 bottles of formula every day (although I only just started her back on formula 8 weeks ago after we found out she is anemic wish I had have kept her on it after she hit 12 months but I listend to MCHN advice - even though she still was not eating any solid food ) hope they dont bust my chops about it on Friday because I dont think I am prepared to give up the bottle its all that stands between me and sanity and I just dont want to argue with them about the politics of bottle feeding toddlers (yeh yeh I know your not supposed to do it but I am sure when she's 21 she wont be drinking milk from a bottle )

    Thanks Naiwen!

    Hannah still has 3 bottles a day- 150ml and 2 x 225mls. I have tried cutting them back in the hope that she will eat food- she won't. The old "they'll eat when they are hungry" doesn't work with my daughter!! I no longer have the energy to argue with her, she is doing very well on her artificial milk and that's the main thing!

    Sara if it makes you feel any better Edward who is two still has 4 bottles a day and the dietician wants him to have more.

    But his formula is 1.5 cals per ml so will help with weight gain if we can get it in him!

    DS weighed about that at 4m corrected (when he was acutally 4m he was about 2kg LOL).

    I know it is scary but hopefully they will come up with ways to help his weight, maybe add a fortifier to his bottles?

    TattooMummy,did they say what they would rather he weigh?? I think his weight sounds pretty good for an early,IUGR bubba especially with the feeding issues you guys have been having.
