Victoria's First Bottle Today!

Victoria had a very productive day today, we started off the morning still breathing a little fast, so the doctors increased her diuretics in hopes that if her lungs were a little wet that this would help. (If it doesn't they may need to put her back on CPAP again.) Victoria is starting to show good signs of wanting to feed so Tracey gave her some milk this morning (see video), Victoria loved it and did very well so at 4pm we tried her first bottle feed. She had 5 cc's of milk from a bottle and gave us a nice loud burb. She didn't get that she had to suck, swallow and breathe all at the same time so we had to help her a few times. We will try again in a few days once we can get her breathing under control.
