Twenty

The baby shuffle continues. We are now in Bay 3 with our favorite
other NICU mom. Hailey now weighs 3 lbs. 14 oz.

Hailey had her first nippling today. She sucked 8 mL of her 38 mL
feeding from a bottle. The last bit was gravity feed through the
syringe, they have moved from the 1.5 hour pump feed to 0.5
hours. Though now they may not need the infusion pump at all.

One of the doctor’s was doing his pass on today while we were
there. He reported that there was nothing to report to the next
shift’s doctor. As he walked over to the next baby he wrote down and
said, “And she’s getting cutier.” It made me laugh, that particular
doctor has the best sense of humor of the bunch.
