Welcome in Baby world.........

Today we struggled with Paul, the new baby from yesterday. He didn't drink, we tried everything, the bottle, the cup with a tube, cup without tube, with a syringe, at last we decided to give him a NG tube and we feed him trough the tube which goes via his nose, direct to his stomach. Now we can feed him even when he is asleep! But he also needed IV medicines, so he has a canule in his hand. He is not very happy, he has fever and he has still diarrhea and he vomits easily. We appreciate your prayers for Paul!

We have now 12 babies in Amecet! Paul is the oldest baby, but weight wise, the biggest baby weighs just 4,3 kg. You can imagine how many bottles we have to give in a day, and also how many diapers are hanging at our clothes line every day! We got a big playpin (box in Dutch), which we put on the veranda, we lay the babies in there, so they are safe from our crawling children!
