Today Ellie has so far had bottles at 6am, 9am, 12pm, 3pm and 6pm!! I have to say she is exhausted now and will sleep well tonight but I’m so super proud of our little girl. She only left 20mls at 9am and 5mls at 12pm. She has come so far and is celebrating her 45/18/5 week birthday as a very happy little girl.
Medically there were no changes today.
Twinning, I’m trying to get my head around two babies that need bottles and want attention. I was doing pretty well til 6pm when both were due a feed at the same time. I attempted my first dual bottle feed, Ellie was very good (and patient) Hannah however was very unimpressed (and having tummy pains), ended up feeding Ellie the seconf half of her bottle late and Hannah getting tummy time and back pats from the nurse.
Early I did manage to give Ellie her bottle while Hannah was sleeping in my arm. We will all learn together slowly.
