Rylee has been doing SOOO well! She is up to 3 pounds and an ounce or two now!!!
Today they started testing her without the nasal cannula to see how she does without it. She still needs it during holding time, but for long spurts during the day today she didn't have one at all!
I love seeing her little face without tubes all over it!
|Original oxygen machine. The humidifier is the little grey and blue thing |
at the bottom with the bubble on top.
|And here's the machine she's on now! WAY less clutter and less wires |
and tubes going every where!
The bottle feeding however, was a completely different story! She did amazingly! She explored the bottle at first, tasting the milk and licking it, then dove right in and sucked it all down like a little pig! I'm so happy she is progressing in some areas so quickly! Hopefully tomorrow will be better with boobie time and she will continue to do well on the bottle so we can get the stupid feeding tube out!!! Breast feeding with the feeding tube in is hard because it gets in the way of her tongue and prevents her from sucking properly.
Here's a quick little video of her taking the bottle like a little champ! :D
