Miles News Roundup

Miles is off to a flying start in '07. Today he celebrated the end of his seventh week. In the past few days, he has reached full feeds (~13ml of milk/hour) and is digesting everything well.

His IV line was removed yesterday, there being no further need to give him nutrition through it.

And finally (drum roll please) he began breast feeding today. He seems to be pretty excited about it.

The nurses are beginning to talk about graduating him down to the second floor (the special care nursery) in the not-too-distant future. It's hard to even contemplate leaving the NICU after seven weeks. But, there you have it.
