Favourite Pasttime

Finally, finger sucking has begun. From being able to aiming her thumb into her mouth, Vera has progressed to sucking on her fingers whenever she's lying on her side. It's a good sign: it shows that she's exploring her own hands, and able to pacify herself with them.

However, the downside is that the movement shifts the feeding tube, it irritates her throat, and causes her to vomit her milk out. It's painful for me to watch - the little girl is just doing what babies do, and has to put up with the consequences.

Boy, do I hate this feeding tube.
