she did great on her sprint today... both times. and made it through the 4 hours this morning only needing about 40%.
daddy almost caught me smiling!we had our bestest this evening and went in around 10 so we could have some quiet. i pumped while she finished her feed. (still 28ml over an hour every 3 hours.) i was SO nervous to try the nns. but it went ok. i have, of course, NO IDEA what i'm doing. but it was nice just to see her in that position. she managed to suck a little... but not latch. (which is to be expected.) the general consensus is that my nipples are a little big for her. she couldn't really even get her mouth around them. especially after i pumped. they get ginormous. (yes that's how you spell it. i googled it to make sure.) maybe some of you ladies could help me with this logistical problem?(specifically preemie mommies.) i think if she was hungry instead of full and tired it might work a little better too. but my husband is convinced that it is physically impossible for her to get enough of it in her mouth to latch. not that he fully understands all that anyway. she pretty much just sucked a little and fell asleep. it's ok for now. we'll just keep practicing. i'm happy to of at least been a comfort to her. she can't start breastfeeding for a while..so we've got some time.
bath time is tomorrow! :) it was too late tonight and thadd and i both have pre-6am mornings tomorrow...er...today. he actually fell asleep while holding her. it was super cute. he did a sleep jump in front of the nurses. we all had a good laugh.. and wren didn't even desat.
i'm off to get my 4 hours of sleep!
