It's bottle time

Aiden has been adjusting well to this new hospital. His weight was up and down resulting in a 0 gain from last Wednesday until Sunday night. His nurse believed that he was burning calories to keep himself warm, so she decided to move him back into the Isolette. This has been a positive move for him. Since Monday Aiden has gained 8oz and now weighs 4lbs 11oz! Aiden also started on 1 bottle on Monday. Since he successfully finished the whole bottle without having any breathing issues they have advanced him to 2 bottles on Tuesday, 3 on Wednesday, and 4 bottles today. As of 9p.m., he finished his fourth bottle for the day so they will be giving him bottles for every feed starting at midnight. Overall, the move to Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital started off rocky, but things are starting to turn around. =)
