7 weeks old - 8/26/12

What a wonderful week! The trio turns 7 weeks old today, it is also Harley Dog's 7th birthday.

All 3 bambinos are now breathing on their own and today the isolette hoods were lifted so they are controlling their own temperatures. They may be put into a large crib together tonight. Today Edison and Giuiliana weigh exactly the same amount- just over 4 pounds. They are all quickly becoming breast feeding champs with a little help from a nipple shield (the Nurses call it training wheels, it makes it a little easier for them to get milk). Some feedings they aren't supplemented at all, they do all their own work. Discussions about what needs to happen before they come home have started and it could be coming in a couple weeks for some of them.

6 Weeks Old: August 19, 2012

Edison, Giuliana and Serafina are 6 weeks old today! It was a great week of milestones for everyone. Serafina transitioned to low flow nasal canula and moved into the isolette with Giuliana, Edison is now enjoying some space to himself. Everyone started doing exploratory breast feeding (practicing for the real deal during their enteral tube feedings). Today Giuliana's last respiratory help was removed and she is now breathing on her own (the little tube in her nose is just for feedings).

Heights and Weights: Edison 3lbs 9.7oz, 16.5 in. Giuliana 3lbs 7oz, 16.1 in. Serafina 2lbs 12.4oz, 15.2 in.
