Pediasure Milk

My baby had Pneumococal Meningitus at age 6 months. She was in ICU for 3 months. She had 6 operations in this time one of them Nissen and the other a PEG (Mic-key) because she was so sick they had to feed her through a drip and she has forgotton how to suck. She also had a stroke in the hospital. So basically i am tube feeding her with the mic-key. The Nissen operation was because she had severe reflux she was vomiting blood in hospital. It is not safe for her to swallow. Apparently she can aspirate. Red Cross is going to do a Modified Berruim Swallow in Jan. 2010. So the dietition said because she is not eating as a normal 1 year old would have i have to stop at 1 year with the Nan that she was on and use Pediasure. I am just not sure about the measurements. I am currently giving her 5 bottles per day of 150ml. And yes she is quite fat. But i also think this is because she is not moving she is like a newborn baby again having to learn all the things again like holding head up, sitting, smiling etc.
