    Feeding Issues

    23weekmiracle posted:
    My daughter was a preemie born at 23 weeks. She had her patent ductus surgically closed, when she was only two weeks into this world, weighing only 500 grams. She was in Intensive Care for 8 long months. While in the NICU, she had a feeding tube put in, and later had a tracheostomy done. She had many complications and surgeries while there. She is now 20 years old, and has had her feeding tube out for about four years now. However, she still does not eat much, and survives mostly on Ensure Plus. Anyone else have anything similar to this with their child?
