I have now empirically learnt quite a lot about babies and the fluid intake even though I am not the primary source of food for her. But the basic principles in babies and fluid intake goes something like this:
- Fluid is inserted into the main upper body cavity in moderate amounts
- Fluid is then secreted through the two main lower body half cavities
- In addition, fluid also is secreted back through the main upper body cavity with some additional output from the nostrils (depending on how you count, one or two cavities I would say
The really fascinating thing here is that I'm quite certain that the output in terms of sheer volume by far surpasses the input of fluid which leads me to the conclusion that babies actually produces some milk like substance in their own bodies just to keep the flow up.She's a little vomiting angel by day, but I have photographic evidence that she turns into a monster during the night (see the picture, taken sometime around 3AM).
