Well after a week in the hospital we are finally home. They tested her for cystic fibrosis and it was negative! We saw an oral motor specialist today and found that her cheeks and jaw muscles are weak and we learned exercises to help with that. Hoping that will eventually help her empty the breast enough on her own. For now I am breast feeding with a supplemental nurser but she has really only been taking 1-1.5 oz from that and then pumping after to empty. She did manage to gain a pound in the week we were there!
