Baby News: Day 6

Hi all,
I went with my mom and sister to the hospital today to see the babies. I fed Aiden and he drank 40 mL of my breast milk. Well, he drank 32 with me and the nurse finished the last 8. They will take the feeding tube out once he drinks all 8 bottles for 48 hrs. I think 48 hrs will be by today. 
We talked to the nurse about Ava. She said Apnea of prematurity is very common in preemies, hence the name. I asked about caffeine, since I've read it really helps babies that have apnea. She said that is for more extreme cases. For babies that have apnea episodes 3-5 times a day. 
We will continue to take it one day at a time, and are grateful for our babies' health.
