This has been one long month, but I THANK GOD for it!! It’s amazing to see how much Emma has changed just in a month! Even though she has all this tape and stuff on her face this is one of my favorite pictures of her! God really out did Himself when he blessed us with this feisty little girl!
We have great news approaching her 1 month birthday, Emma has been taking 100% of her feeds for over 24 hours!! Praise God! We first tried to change her eating times because she was awake on the other schedule, so that was the first step. Then we noticed it as working but not as much. Then Friday her nurse said since she is a big girl lets spread her feeds out to every 4 hours, and BAM just like that she started taking 100% of her feeds…I cant Thank God enough!!! Hopefully, our little princess will be home this week if she continues! Yesterday, I didn’t get a chance to feed her, however, today I’m not leaving the hospital until I get a chance to feed her and make sure I understand what exactly I’m doing! But I have faith that she will take 100% from me too!
As I stated earlier, we have tried many bottles with Emma but the ones that are working now are some of the ones we tried in the beginning…
Currently, we are using the Enfamil Cleft Palate Nurser and its working great! Praise God! I hope you all don’t get tired of me saying Praise God in this post! This experience has been very hard for all of us! Wanting your baby to eat by herself, is something small we often take for granted! If this experience has taught me one thing it’s not to take anything for granted, and to lean on God! Because without him I know we wouldn’t have been able to make it through all of this!
Well again Happy 1 Month Birthday Babygirl…Mommy and Daddy love you!!
