NICU Day 42

Baby Girl continues to do amazingly well.  Today in awesome, when Baby Girl snuggled down onto my chest for her 2:30 feeding, she immediately started rooting for food.  I'm so excited to have her show interest in breastfeeding (and for that matter eating by mouth at all).  She tasted some breast milk from a 1 ml syringe and sucked on her pacifier while taking her feed. 

Dr Caldwell called with updates
  • Adjusted feed up to 27 due to weight gain
  • Blood gas looked great. Giving her one more week on CPAP and then trying to shift to nasal cannula, if she agrees with that plan, that will head is toward practice nursing in a couple weeks...
