Max I am glad to hear the Fleet worked ok for you. I am not sure but I thought I remembered reading somewhere that you should switch off from the milk and the electrolites. Have you tried using a those red nipples w/the yellow caps? I forgot what they are called off the top of my head. I have always had good luck with those, and I did have one kid last year that I thought I was never going to get to take the bottle. After about 2 or 3 times of force feeding them w/the bottle, it worked. We used those empty small coke or mountain dew bottles. I have also heard of many who had success with Pan feeding, I just hate the idea of tube feeding unless you really have no choice, and I am sure the poor little guy is getting a lot of air in his belly from it too.
Keep us posted on how he is doing..ok (smile)
