Where's My Red Bull?

Surprise. Surprise. Kayley had another good day...except for that eating thing. But, we're letting her slide a bit because she's still pretty young to get the hang of it just yet. She did take 15 ccs from the nurse today and 10 cc's from me tonight, but she's still not real interested in breast feeding. I'm sure she'll get the hang of it soon.

There are a couple updates from this weekend that I have just become aware of. Kayley was taken off caffeine this past Sunday. Normally they just let them outgrow it unless they show signs that they need it. Kayley was still receiving a dose that a 3 lb baby would get. So, she basically outgrew it. If there are any signs that she still needs it (apnea, slowing heart rate) then they will start it up again. We don't think she'll need any though because she was on such a small dose.

Kayley's length was measured at 17 3/4 inches on Sunday. It's amazing how much she's grown during her time here...and this proves it's not just her weight. Her head circumference is also in the 50th percentile. She's pretty much right on track with all her measurements.

Now to Kayley's weight. Did she make 6 lbs tonight? Well, she weighed in at 2700 grams which is up 40 grams from last night. And that converts to...........5 lbs 15 oz. She is just one ounce shy of doubling her birth weight. Amazing. The night nurse had the day nurse ask the doctor today about Kayley's massive weight gains. There is no worrying from them. They are very happy with her weight progress.
