Eating Like a Champ

Natalie and I just got a phone call from Kylee's bedside nurse.  We knew that they were planning to up the quantity of milk they gave to her; however, they decided to experiment and go one step further today.  The nurse told us that they attempted to feed Kylee using a bottle and she took to it like a champ!!!

Being able to feed successfully from a bottle is one of the things that Kylee must successfully do before she is allowed to come home.  Hopefully, we will be able to check that off of the list for sure!!

Natalie and I are going to the hospital later this evening to see her....more updates to follow....

  1. That's terrific. Eating from a bottle is a huge step forward for her, and brings her that much closer to coming home. Squeeee!!! Don't be surprised if she has to have some feedings from her NG tube, though. Eating from a bottle is hard work compared to having milk just pumped straight to your stomach, so she'll have to build up strength for that. It takes even longer for them to get strong enough to nurse. Go, Kylee, go!
