Big Boy Bed

So our little trooper has graduated from his isolet and has moved into his "big boy bed"! We're so proud of the little guy! He's doing really well at regulating his temperature and he's now focusing on learning how to suck, breathe and swallow all at the same! Yesterday Logan and I also got to practice breastfeeding...the real way. ;) The little guy did pretty good, considering how young he is. He latched on, took a few good sucks, and then...turned blue. Scared the crap out of his mom! So...we took him off...let him regain his pinkish glow...and then tried again. Only to have an instant replay of our first attempt. He's got part of it down! But...unfortunately...we've got a ways to go on this one. But we're proud parents nevertheless! All the nurses say he's the star of the NICU. And we couldn't agree more!


  1. He really looks SOO MUCH like Chad! He is a superstar being this young and doing so well!

  2. He is so adorable! Yay for graduating to a big boy bed Logan! I'm glad you have not given up on breastfeeding and that the NICU staff is being supportive. The NICU here in LV was weird about me trying to breastfeed Weston so I just pumped for him but when he was released he was really used to the bottle unfortnately.

  3. I'm amazed how well your little guy is doing. You have got to be thrilled. You'll be bringing him home before you know it.
