We had our virtual visit with the dietician today and Jude’s new diet is one we wish we could all have - add butter and oils to your food! We will add a little to each meal he eats and the hope is that will be enough to get him to the goal growth curve they want him to be on. Because his little body works so much harder than normal to his blood where it needs to go and his oxygen saturations are lower than the average person, he burns calories a lot faster than the average baby. This is something he will battle going forward, but hopefully these small changes will do the trick.
His next appointment will be with the pediatrician next week for his 6 month checkup and shots.
Here Jude is eating his dinner with some added olive oil. He seems to approve so far. 😊
