Baby Larva had an incredible feeding at 9 pm!
Hubby and I went down to scrub in and then Hubby learned how to take her temperature and properly change her diaper (we have to save them for NICU to weigh - everything in or out is measured).
She then was unwrapped from her swaddle and handed to me in my wheelchair for Kangaroo Care. She immediately latched on and nursed excellently for 45 minutes! This is wonderful!
Mum (Cookie) and I will return every three hours tonight (midnight, 3 am, 6 am) to continue feeding her - or more often if she screams.
This was an incredible development, since she hasn't really eaten all day long. If she continues eating this well, we might actually see her leave the NICU before we're discharged from the hospital on Sunday!
Thank you for your continued prayers.
