This has been a big week for Sidney. Not only is he up in weight, he's now wearing clothes! He's still in the incubator, but it's no longer heated. He has to work at keeping his body temperature up himself. So far he's doing it with flying colors! Hopefully this means he'll be moved from the incubator to an open crib soon!
His doctor also gave a written order that Sid is now allowed to attempt breastfeeding. He still has a gavage tube in his mouth to feed him, but we are working on getting him to attach and to suckle as best he can. It's only been three days, but I must say I'm really impressed with him. He's so eager to nurse.
