The Two Ounce Stomach
Ever since Eliza came home almost 16 months ago she has never, ever, ever consumed more than four ounces of formula at a time. I have been told "she has a small stomach." Well I was willing to buy that for some time, although considering the rest of her has grown, not much mind you, one would think her stomach had also grown. No such luck. In fact this past week it seems her stomach has in fact shrunk. For the past week she has rarely been able to consume more than two ounces at a time. I can only imagine what explanation I'll be given for this new development when I see her GI on Friday. I am fairly certain that the majority of the medical profession believes that parents, like me, are blooming idiots and that any nonsense they try to pass off on us will be happily accepted by us.
