Juliana had a very successful breastfeeding today! When she tried on Monday, she seemed to be very excited about it, but wasn’t able to latch on for very long at a time. Today, however, she went for about 15 minutes steady, and was able to get half of her feed down before she fell asleep and had to have the rest gavaged. We’re so proud of her! I know it’s tiring, but she loves it (and so do I!).
Her weight today is 1810 grams (3 lbs, 15.5 oz). So, she should hit the 4 lb mark by tomorrow, and she will likely be in her crib in the next 2 days. They didn’t want to move her directly into the crib today because she is still recovering from her eye surgery. This way, she doesn’t need to expend as many of her precious calories keeping warm.
Jason will be joining me back down here in Baltimore tonight. Juliana and I have both missed him very much. Now, Sophie has to go it alone for a few days.
