Turning the corner

I think that Will is turning the corner on this whole eating thing! He has been working on it for awhile now but I didn't want to post and jinx it! LOL!

Anyway, since we have started with the pediasure a few weeks ago he has been increasing his daily ounces. With his formula we would struggle to get 20 ounces a day in him, with the pediasure he is easily getting 24 ounces down a day. With the formula we were tubing feeding him with every bottle, since we have started the pediasure we have not had to tube feed him at ALL!!!! Yup, you read that right! We have not had to tube feed William in over 2 weeks!! He is DRINKING 24 ounces a day! I think that he likes the taste of the pediasure better than the formula. It is a nice vanilla flavor (he smells like a vanilla bean most days, sometimes, me too!).

In addition to the pediasure he is also eating stage 1 baby food a lot better now too. He will eat about a full jar of the baby food at each meal. He is eating almost three jars of baby food a day. Of course the stage 1 baby foods are the really small jars but nonetheless, we will take it! Before he would let everything that we would put in his mouth just fall out. Now he is holding it in his mouth and swallowing it, letting nothing come out!

You have no idea what an accomplishment this is for William. It is time to start packing on the pounds!! Just kidding!
