A quick one! I've got some house stuff to catch up on!
Both babies nursed soooo well this morning! They both took 22cc's of their feeds by breast, Maya in 20 minutes and Bobby over 30 (honestly, I think he got more than that and the scale was wrong; he seemed like he was going to town a lot more than she was, but what do I know!). Her feeds are at 34 and his are at 36, so this was over half! Yay! They are getting better and better with the sucking and swallowing. Soon, I think I may just stay at the hospital so that I can be there for most of their feedings. Perhaps next week... Today is the last 1 breast feed day and tomorrow, we will try breast feeding twice a day. So, it's definitely progress and we dont want to rush it, not when they are doing so well!
I ended up not going to the car dealer today (they sold the SUV) but I have an appt for tomorrow at another dealer. I was able to spend a long, wonderful morning at the hospital (I may have to adjust my days so I can go every day like this, although that would cut into the little bit of sleep I do have... Maybe not... A mommy who falls asleep in the rocking chair wouldnt be good!) In my spare time, since rounds were this morning, I called and scheduled 2 pediatrician consults, both local. One doctor goes to church with us and the other was recommended by the hospital, so we will see who we like more. I'll be sure to post our questions and why we choose whomever we choose. We see one on Wednesday and the other next Tuesday.
Well, off to house stuff!
