This weekend the twins made wonderful gains!
Lily weighs 3.10
Harper weighs 3.8
I fed Lily 20cc of breast milk from a bottle today at 11:00a.m. The remaining 8 cc she took through her tube. She latched onto the bottle/nipple immediately, fixed her eyes on mine, and finished what she could in 10 minutes. VERY good start for a first timer! We will give it another try tomorrow.
Harper had her first try at bottle feeding tonight at 8:00 and was not quite as successful as Lily however, we are so proud of her for doing as well as she did which was 5 cc. The remaining 23cc she took from her tube. She was alert at first and the few sucks she managed she gazed at me the whole time however, having just had a bath and it being the end of the day she was simply too tired to make much effort to suck and breathe and swallow - a very coordinated task to ask of such a little baby!
We are so proud of them both!
More updates to follow.
Here is a picture just for fun!
They are fraternal but they look pretty identical to us!
