2.5 Liters Every 90 minutes

April 11, 2009

For some reason Nora is incapable of going more than 90 minutes between feedings at night, but during the day she can go for 3-4 hours at a time in peace. Needless to say this is rather frustrating. She weighs roughly 3 kg and eats about 90 mL every sitting, usually with a slight pause in the middle for burping. I weigh about 82 kg, so for me to eat the equivalent of her meal, I would have to drink 2.5 liters (2/3 of a gallon) of milk. Every 90 minutes!

That's a lot of milk to chug down at one sitting. It's amazing that she only barfs once every 10 meals or so.
