NICU Day 10: May 19th, 2014

Another milestone today! Emily got her first bottle! Bryan and I learned how to give her a bottle from one of the nurses (it’s a little different giving a bottle to a preemie- they’re still learning how to suck, swallow, and breath at the same time, so need to be held differently and taught how to pace themselves so they don’t choke/gag). Emily did awesome, and took just under half her feeding through the bottle, without issue. Bryan got to feed her as well, which was a great experience.

It was also Bryan’s first day back at work…Emily was so excited to see him once he got back!!

That was the big news of the day today, so here are some pics šŸ™‚
