Babies Situation:

Today was exciting. Not only are the Girls 11 weeks old today but when I came to visit, Kinsley was off her nasal cannula. So far, she’s done really well all day. Go Kinsley!! The occupational therapist and speech therapist also visited the Girls today. The occupational therapist assessed both Girls and let me know that their muscle tone has gotten a lot better in the last week. It was really nice to hear!! The speech therapist decided it was time to bottle feed both Girls. With them being almost 36 weeks, she said that we would start trying once a day until they can figure it out. I was very thankful to hear this knowing it can take weeks for a 24 weeker to catch on to bottle feeding. I was there while she fed Trinity and she did pretty good. Her heart rate and oxygen level remained where it should. She would take a few sucks, and then she’d take a rest to breathe. From what I was told, Kinsley did the same. Baby steps. Trinity gained weight today coming in at 4 lbs 15 oz. She’s almost caught up to Kinsley who remains at 5 lbs.

Parent's Thoughts:

The speech therapist is going to let met work with the Girls on their bottle feeding. Tomorrow, she is going to let me bottle feed them as she watches and instructs me on what to do. I am very excited about this. I know it’s not going to be easy for them but they will catch on when they are ready. From here out, this will be a daily routine for us. Please pray that they catch on soon and that they stop having apnea.

Our Daily Encouragement:

God’s peace…is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet at rest.

Philippians 4:7

  1. This is all wonderful news... the girls are doing so well! I'm praying that the bottle feeding goes well and they don't have anymore apneas. It will take time, but they will figure it out. They are so strong and so are you! ;)
