Surprisingly, and happily, Aaron gained 50 grams yesterday, so hes now at 2030 grams (2 kilos! or, 4.47 pounds). This, in spite of having to maintain his own body heat in the open crib, having limited bottle/gavage feeds, and being held almost all day yesterday. Were hoping that the breast feeding is kicking in, and contributing the extra food that Aaron needs to continue growing.
Kathleen said that Aaron has just been a joy for the past two days. Hes been breast feeding well, or at least trying his best. Kathleen said that Aaron has been very happy and peaceful, and shes been spending a lot of kangaroo time with him. This is one well-loved boy!
Its hump day, its raining in California and freezing cold in New York. How about an Aaron burrito to warm up the day?
