Hi, I am the grandma of two beautiful boy girl twins. They were born at 35 weeks. Mackenzie the girl, is perfect and healthy and doing great. Matty was having trouble breathing when he was born and spent 18 days in the NICU, with problems like maintaining body temperature and he was being tube fed for quite sometime. He was released 6 days ago and feeding him is very hard. He will not take the bottle on his own. We actually have to help him move his mouth and remind him to eat. I am not sure if his suck reflex isn't good or if it is his little recessed chin. A bottle of 3 ounces can take an hour or so. I am just wondering if anyone else has had this experience or has any advise. My daughter is very depressed and I feel like I have to do something and I don't know what to do.
