Two weeks in the Transitional Care Nursery! Woo Hoo!
The babies are doing much better today than yesterday. Bobby has nippled almost 60% of his feed and Maya has done 40%. One of the nurses showed us a new way to bottle feed that has helped. Using a pillow under my arm, I lay them at about 40 degrees on their side with their back against my body and feed them. They can still see my face by apparently this position helps babies learn to suckle more effectively. It's working. We are seeing a huge improvement. Bobby took 2 full bottles today and Maya took one full bottle! This is great news!
Day three of my breast milk mega journey and today is the first day that I didnt make enough milk to feed them for the day. :( I was only down a few mils (and thankfully they have enough from previous to make up for that). I am hoping tomorrow will be a better day.
