Husband and I went to see Baby Girl together today. C4 stayed with Mimi and Papa, I'm sure he's having a blast. While we were at the hospital, I gave Baby Girl a massage and then she cuddled with her daddy for over an hour.
Her respiratory rate was a little high today, so they didn't wean her down further on her CPAP. Maybe she'll have settled by tomorrow, we'll have to see.
She did gain quite a bit of weight today (3.3 oz). I expressed some concern, but her nurse assured me it isn't a totally worrisome weight gain. She said she didn't look super puffy, she just looked like a bit of a chunk. She got some oral stim with her 8:30 feeding (drops of breastmilk around her binky) and she loved it. Her nurse and I agreed she'd probably be quite the eater once she's set free.
