|Becky feeding Taya|
Good news is that Taya is rocking it out at the boob (sorry no pictures)! She is great at breastfeeding. In fact we think that she is doing so well that it is kind of impeding her from progressing with the bottle. Example: tonight Emily had Taya suckling for about 10 minutes, Emily is certain that she got about 20 mL. Taya has to eat 43 mL from her bottle, so when Emily is done breastfeeding Taya has to drink all of her bottle. Taya wanted nothing to do with the bottle after she had about 20 mL from the bottle which meant that she had to get the remaining 23 mL through the tube. That means that Taya got an extra 20 mL. We are going to talk to the nurses and see if there is anything that they can do to check how much she got from Emily. Anyway, kinda frustrating.
Taya also gained weight! 2 more ounces, that puts her at 4 lbs 7.6 oz. She is almost back to birth weight, 1.4 oz to go! The boys are still doing well. They are both at 16 cc of oxygen which is the last step before being on room air (no oxygen). Everything else is about the same. They are such cute little babies, and getting cuter as they are opening their eyes, and reacting to us. Till tomorrow!
