Get it Girl!

i make milk Pictures, Images and Photos

Great News!! Charlotte has really started to get the hang of breast feeding! The hospital "strongly encouraged" that we feed her using a bottle so that they could get an accurate measuremant but Jake and I both wanted to be sure that she was boob baby before getting a bottle. We have been doing a combination of breast feeding and tube feeding to insure that she gets the volume she needs without nipple confusion. If she keeps up the good work we should be able to ditch the NG tube (literally meaning naso-gastic, or nose to tummy) pretty soon! We will definatly use bottles at home, maybe sooner now that we have learned the art of breast feeding. Here is a picture with Charlotte and her feeding tube. It really isn't as intimidating as it looks and she truly doesn't even seem to notice. What an angel!

You blog is so cute. Little Charlotte is just precious.I hope you guys are doing great. Do you know how long she will be in the hospital? I bet that is really hard but I am so glad she seems to be healthy. Do you guys live in Boise? We are moving back in March. It would be fun to get together if you are there. Congrats again. She is beautiful!!!

Steal away my darling friend! Ximena has already petitioned for me to teach her a blog 101 class. Perhaps you should be next in line when you're up to it. Let me know! Hope your babe is getting big and healthy!
And major props for being so protective. Awareness is key. RSV= the most horrible thing ever... been there.
