At 3 this morning DH was able to get an ounce in him by spoon, and Emerson kept it down! Then at 4 he finally nursed!!!! Then he peacefully slept four hours, woke, and nursed again! Now he is sleeping again. I plan to spend the day in bed with him so he can sleep and nurse as much as he wants.

SUCH a relief that he is nursing again! Praise God!
Great news melinda!!
