trying the bottle again

Just a quick update - they decided not to do the second barium procedure today after all. It is a little frustrating when we cannot make a plan and stick with it, but they decided it was not necessary right now. Instead they are giving Charlie a chance to try the bottle out again. He was allowed two feedings today with 5 mls each. The first one he completely refused, but the second went okay. We tried a new bottle tonight (a Nuby one), so maybe that made a difference. As of when we left, he had not puked it up yet! He has been really active, batting at the toys that hang in his crib and kicking his feet around. Even with his hands safely secured in mittens (that are actually socks), he seems happy and playful! Hopefully we can keep making progress with this bottle thing!

Praying that Charlie as "good days" with the bottle and it all stays down and doesn't cause any problems!!
