Maryam's been eating anywhere from an ounce to 3.5 ounces 3 times a day! Its pretty exciting news. On Sunday she actually took in 240 calories orally! She at 5.5 ounces of baby food and drank 4 ounces of Pediasure, it was by far her most successful day as far as eating goes. Yesterday she took in 165 cals and today she's only taken in about 40 cals. She has a cut on her tongue and we have no idea where it came from, I'm kind of wondering if maybe that's why she's not eating as well today as she did yesterday and the day before.
Hooray for progress!!!!
In crappy news, Maryam has started pulling her own hair out when she sleeps. The past few mornings, or as long as a week, I can't remember, Maryam wakes up with gobs and gobs of hair in her fingers, on her clothes and on her sheets. I know her hair isn't just falling out because there isn't excessive hair in the bathtub after a bath or in her comb after I comb her hair. My BFF Christi did some research and found that toddlers do this as a self-soothing tool when they're stressed. GREAT, my two year old is stressed. I'm guessing her new schedule and all the food she's eating is the major cause of her stress. Thoughts?

UPDATE: Maryam ate an entire 4 ounce jar of baby food at dinner tonight. It took about an hour and 20 minutes, but she ate it all! That particular food was sweet potatoes with turkey and it contained 30 calories. HOORAY!!!!
