Dr. Brown Bottles - Attempt #1

Tim feeding Brooklyn
Lazy Saturday in the NICU
Nurse Stephanie feeding Tayden - 25 mL
Sweet sleepy Tayden
We were blessed to spend a lot of time at the hospital today.  We were both able to try to bottle feed the babies this evening using the Dr. Brown bottles that Tim bought.  Brooklyn took 6 mL and then fell asleep, but Tayden took 25mL!!!!  This is the most interested he has ever been in the bottle and the most he has ever taken.  His breathing is still a little rapid, but they have been able to turn down the flow of his cannula a little.  They have scheduled him to have a chest x-ray in the morning to see how his lungs look.  Hopefully the fluid will no longer be present.  Brooklyn now weighs 5 lbs. 3 oz. and Tayden weighs 5 lbs. 11 oz.  Please pray that Tayden's chest x-ray will be clear and that both babies will continue to improve on their bottle feeding.
