Would like some input on how & why you do this:
On a baby that is not nippling all feeds, but is nippling some, WHEN do you check for residual?
For example, if the baby can nipple every other feed & finished the nipple feed without needing to gavage the remainder, do you check for residual prior to the next feed?
Or, if the baby nipples 1/2 of the feed & gavages the remainder, do you check residual prior to the next feed?
Early in my career, I seem to remember being taught NOT to check residual if the baby nippled anything at all during the previous feeding.
