Weight Update: 4lbs 10oz!

Sidney is growing fast! He's now 4lbs 10oz...I can't believe it. The nurse had to weigh him twice just to be sure. Big news...he's off of the high-flow nasal cannula and onto a low-flow one. This means that he's becoming less and less dependent on the high oxygen levels. Next step, room air!

He's getting better with feeding from a bottle. Jeremy is AWESOME with feeding him, he's got the magic touch. Me, not so much. :( I'm new to all of this, so I'll learn eventually.

Sidney got a bath tonight...but this time he was bathed in a tub! Little guy seemed to really like it. Didn't cry once, that is until we took him out of the water. He loved it. The nurse bathed him a special way...she kept him swaddled. This way he felt protected by the constraints of the blanket, but she could still wash him one body part at a time. The picture below is of his bath, it's a little dark, but it was nighttime when this was taken, so it was dark in the NICU.
