Sometimes we all just need to think outside the box! As Lentil is maturing, he is becoming more and more difficult to feed. We have our routine down, and everything is going well...but now he sees me and sees the tube and he becomes excited because he knows that his belly is going to get full.
It's important to feed him upright, so his Aunt Sarah and I got together and started our first prototype of Lentil's new "feeding station"! This is him getting fit for his "hammock". The way that this will work is that his legs will fit through holes on the hammock which is stretched over the wood base. Lentil will be comfortably strapped in, and with his legs free underneath, he can paddle and "nurse" without the fear of his paw getting near his actual tube! It looks like a night of sewing for me! We are hopeful that this will work to stabilize him as he feeds and keep him at the safest angle for food intake! Fingers crossed!!! We should have the finished design ready by tomorrow!
