We tried our 2 day feeding trial on Thursday and Friday this past week and overall I would say it was a partial success. Sophia replaced almost all of the calories that she missed from her tube feedings with real food, but her fluid intake was WAY off . I also felt like I was constantly hounding her to eat, eat, eat, all day long and it was a little stressful trying to make sure that we would get as close as possible to our calorie goal. Sophia also has a limited amount of food that she will almost always eat, and for the most part it's not really all the best of foods. But it was a good start and I got the information we need to make some adjustments with our speech therapists and try again in another 2 weeks!
