Some Good News

Loki ate 15 ccs (which is like nothing, but fine for a baby) for two bottles in a row! And I finally got to feed him one of the bottles. I wanted Alan to feed him a bottle instead of me so that Lochlan will associate mommy with breastfeeding, but Alan is getting sick. Mother in law is getting sick. Ander is almost better, but now I have a cold and a sore throat. Try coughing with a cut in half tummy - ouchie!

My milk has come in, so Loki is getting exclusively breastmilk at this point. I am producing double what he needs, so even if he never nurses well (though, based on his seek, find through two layers of clothes, and bite down on mommy's nipple reflex - double owie - that's not a problem), he'll have breastmilk in the freezer for a while.

It was so weird feeding him. Ander always took about 30 minutes to drink 20 ccs, which was why he was in the NICU. Loki takes about 30 seconds.

Race on.
