She’s doing really well. She was taken off her CPAP last week and lasted 22 hrs and 20 min on her own (on low-flow). Can’t wait for her to get rid of her NG tube. I don’t mind the sensors that monitor her heart rate, respiration and oxygen saturation. I can’t wait for her to get off her CPAP and NG tube though! She is soooo much cuter without all those things all over her little face 🙂She started getting tired from working so hard on her own and I asked if she could be put back on her CPAP. I know. She’s much cuter without that mask on, but I just worried that she was working too hard and that she’d exhaust herself. While she is doing amazingly well, I wouldn’t want her to take two steps forward and ten steps back. She was looking very tachypneic to me and I just got really worried. Perhaps I am turning into one of those moms. I don’t think I’m obsessed or paranoid though. I just worry about her. She’s my baby. She was put back on CPAP for the past few days and will try to go off of it again tomorrow. Low-flow as tolerated. Keeping my fingers crossed!She’s getting pretty chunky! Check out the rolls, creases and dimples in her arms and legs! Ooooh! That triple chin is just so yummy! I want to kiss her all over!Big yawn!
I’m running out of places to store Little One’s milk. I’ve got to freeze it and make sure she has enough at the hospital for when I’m not there, but the nurses say she has PLENTY of milk to last her a few weeks…even with her increase in intake. She is now consuming 22 cc of milk every two hours and weighs almost 4 lbs! She was 980 g at birth, so she’s packing on the weight right now. The freezer at the place I’m staying at is also filled with milk. Oh, what to do when you’ve got a milk surplus and you don’t want to waste any of it because it’s liquid gold for your baby?
