They will be 3 weeks old on Monday! I cant believe how quickly time flies!
They are still in the NICU, known as feeders and growers. Weve had some issues with the occupational therapist as far as bottle feeding and breast feeding, but I am winning so far! We are breastfeeding 2x a day. Both boys are taking upwards of 15-20mls at the breast. We figure this out by weighing them before and after feedings. They both weigh 4 1/2lbs each. They have slightly elevated bilirubin levels (9.3 for each boy as of this morning), but there isnt a concern about putting them under lights again.
They are in a crib together. We get to do alot of thier care when we visit, and it helps us feel closer to them. They are learning feeding times really well, and are begining to wake up before feedings and rooting around. They are latching on really well, and are sucking better and better each time they are at the breast. I am still pumping for them too!
We are hoping to bring them home within the next few weeks.
