More Good News!

The swallow study went well! Owen is no longer aspirating and can now have breast milk and regular formula (without rice cereal to thicken it) in his bottle. He can also be breast fed.

This is a big step in the direction of not needing the gtube.

So far, he has to continue with two bottles per day. He has to stick with the same amount per bottle and same time frame for feeding with the bottle. The only change, at this point, is that he can have thinner liquids.

We'll keep the updates coming.

Bottle feeding always wears him out. We can't wait until he gets to enjoy it more.
