Ladies I need your help fairly urgently!
As you know the twins are premature, and wee Abbie had to go to neo natal. At the hospital they were feeding ok, but since being home it is a nightmare.
Neither twin will stay awake for the entire feed and as they were early we have to be really strict forcing them to take at least 40ml per feed.
They last about 15 - 20 minutes wide awake and then are practically comotose. We have to pratically force feed the last 10 - 15mls. It is taking us well over an hour per child per feed. Which we have been told is a mega no no
They are not eating enough which terrifies Neil and I, but have tried every trick in the book to keep them awake. Include Ella jumping all over them. Nada!
Any tips please ladies. We are exhausted as you can imagine and worried sick. We need them to eat to gain weight, but feel like we are force feeding
