Katie Rose is sneaking up on five pounds. She is doing so well. A couple of days ago, on her first try, she “got” bottle feeding. She still needs to get most of her calories from her stomach tube, but this will change over time.
When Phyllis comes to visit the NICU these days, first there’s a bit of breast feeding, then Katie gets a bottle. With stops along the way for burping, and micro naps for Katie Rose so she has the strength to keep feeding. With wonderful baby grunting and burbling noises as Katie Rose progresses.
