Babies Situation:

The Girls are 12 weeks old today and growing. Trinity is 5 lbs 5 oz and Kinsley is 5 lbs 9 oz. Big Girls, huh!! The bottle feeding is still a work in progress. Trinity is now getting 2 bottles a day. She still has a weak suck and still struggles with reflux. Kinsley is getting bottle fed every other feeding so she is up to 4 per day. She showed her first signs of reflux today. During one of her feedings, she choked and then held her breath for about 30 seconds turning grey. Talk about scary.

Parent's Thoughts:

Kinsley’s spell tonight made me realize that the Girls are not out of the woods. I was feeding her when she made a small choking sound. I took the bottle out of her mouth and sat her up to pat her back. The monitor started to ding letting me know she was not breathing and she started to turn grey. Luckily, Andrea (primary nurse) was right there and remained calm. Me patting her on her back was not working so Andrea suctioned out her mouth but Kinsley still didn’t respond. Once she gave Kinsley oxygen, she started to breath again and her color came back. I hope I won’t have to experience anymore spells like that. Feeding them is already intimidating and this didn’t help.

Our Daily Encouragement:

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.

Isaiah 42:16

  1. Hi Trena, It's good to hear you are bottle feeding and to see the pics of how big the girls have grown in the past 12 weeks. Such a blessing. You have set backs, but you and your girls are doing great. Keep pressing forward. Just like scripture says The Lord will not put more on you than you can bare.
