I'm glad she's improving! Can we see pics of this tiny girl?
I completely agree - a bit too little is a lot safer than too much, especially with babies who have had a hard start. I had my little Xena get Entero.I would be careful to feed too much at once...better to do less more often IMO...I do agree go with your gut..and hers..if she feels sunken then add a bit more..go slow..8 oz at one week sounds like a huge amount....but I know many whose baies do well on that amount...I think its more of a get them used to it..see what they can digest well..keep watch on poop.ect...lots of signs to watch...10% of body weight is a starting point...
I would give her an enema if you haven't seen her poop, and cut back on the milk. You want her tummy to be flat, or ever so slightly rounded, not tight. If she continues to not eat or starts acting ill, I would consider giving her a CD anti-toxin.Her tummy's making a lot of noise as though it's upset. Should I cut back on amount?
I've been making her take about an ounce every two hours, and she's waking me up almost on the dot by squeaking, so I'm guessing she is hungry - but the last two feedings she hasn't wanted to suck at all. She seems strong and bright - last feeding she was able to stand for a second or two when I set her up. This time she almost did, but not quite, so she may be SLIGHTLY weaker, but she still seems just as bright and curious. Holding her head up and looking around.
BTW I have not seen the meconium yet, and I think I would have if she had passed it.
