Today the 3 of us went to see Blair. She was doing great when we got there. They are now feeding her for 2 hours on and 1 hour off. She is at 24ml/hour and they are still only giving her 1 bottle/day. They were going to give her one at 5:00 pm tonight while we were there visiting and they decided not to because her respirations were at 84 and not below 70. We had also just changed her dressing, diaper, took her temp and blood pressure. I also wiped her down with some warm wet wipes because she was a little stinky. :) She is getting a big bath tonight though! This was the first time that Britt has seen her Omphalocele since she was born. Baylee kept saying it was her big owie on her belly!
Kelly - to answer your question... I have decided not to breastfeed her. I don't want to be the only one to be able to feed her. I can't commit to being at the hospital 5 or 6 times a day especially having a 3 year old at home. But, she is getting the best thing from my breastmilk so I'm SO thankful I'm not having any issues pumping!
