This morning as Lori and I made our way through the rooms in the maternity ward, praying for the new moms and the waiting-to-be moms and the moms who just lost their babies, we met Hammadou and his mama. Hammadou was born early, a premie probably weighing 2 pounds max, and here he is, a month later, having grown a bit in length, but not with much poundage added. It turns out the mom doesn’t have much milk to offer, and she was taught very well how to take care of a bottle and mix formula, but she was only feeding him formula once a day. We were able to help out a bit with explaining in fulfulde all about how often to give formula etc. When I went back in the afternoon, she had already given him 3 feedings, every 2 hours! Yippee! And he was trying to nurse as well. Please pray for Hammadou, that he will grow big and strong, that God will bless him and his family.
