Day 8 in NICU

Bundled Up and Sleeping

Katie is staying warm and is up to 4 lbs. 11 oz. Her milk is being fortified to increase calorie content. Her doctor would like to see her gain 1 oz a day. Last night she was up 2/3 oz.

She didn’t eat any of her 11:00 a.m. feeding for me. She ate her 8:00 p.m. feeding really fast, probably because her grandma feed her. It seems like we are still a little ways off from removing the feeding tube. To remove the tube, Katie will have to eat all of her feedings from the bottle. Right now she is skipping too many.

Katie made plenty of dirty diapers for mom to change. As soon as Brianna would get a clean diaper on Katie would make it dirty again and Brianna would have to start over.
