Today I got to do "kangaroo care" with Liam. It was my first time to hold him! I don't realize how small he is until I am holding him. He did really well with me and I got to hold him for 30 minutes with skin to skin contact. You can't hold them too long because they lose body heat.
Liam also got to get breast milk for the first time today. It's a big deal for them. His tummy digested it and now it's up to his intestines to do their thing. Sometimes the feedings can be rough since their bodies aren't ready for food so the problems that can arise can prevent them from getting anymore.
Liam also did well on his oxygen requirements today.
So- many praises today that we have much to be thankful for!
That Liam's body would do amazingly well with his feeds!
That Liam's lungs would get stronger and healthier!
