Here’s a little update…
• He’s 4# 4oz
• Off the IV
• Up to the maximum feedings and doing well (32ml … just over 1 oz)
• He’s getting chubby cheeks
Everything is still going well. His lungs look a little better on the x ray, but they still have him on a very small amount of oxygen (he’s at 22% .. we breathe 21%.. ohh sooo close). His respirations seem lower.. and that’s good because then they can bottle feed more often.
I am trying to breast feed here and there. Yesterday, during our kangaroo session I tried and he got the hang of it. But it didn’t last long because I wasn’t holding him the best and he got mad. I hope to try again today while his is swaddled in a blanket .. it will make things easier and won’t allow his arms and legs to flail about.
Now I will leave you with these new adorable pictures..
