New Milestone for Jerkface

Well, Jerkface is still plugging along. After another regurg in early December (after which he weighed 31 grams), he's kept down his last 2 feedings.

More importantly though, his weight has sneaked up to 40 grams - his highest since I got him 11 months ago (he was 27 grams when I got him and I've struggled mightily with him gaining and losing weight).

Differences? Since he's now a year old (regardless of his stunted size), I haven't been keeping his humidity as high and I've stretched his feedings (5-6 gram fuzzies) to every 2 weeks. I've also recently been able to transition him to feeding in his viv rather than the deli cup I've been using.

I'm afraid to get too optimistic again, but finally gaining some decent weight has to be a good thing right? Could the lowered humidity have made that big a difference?

Re: New Milestone for Jerkface

I'm glad he's putting on some weight phenyx. Hopefully he can totally get over the regurge issues.
