24/1/17 – Day 42
Another mini milestone day, Arlo is 31 weeks corrected today! Weight as of this morning is 1190g which is *just* shy of 2lb10oz.
He’s almost back up to full feeds now and today he’s been so much more settled than the last few days. No proper desats while we were with him today, in fact he was showing off and saturating at 100 for a while this afternoon. Such a difference from a few days ago.
Today he tried a dummy for the first time. It’s the cutest little dummy I’ve ever seen, so tiny! The plan is to give it to him during feeds so he starts to make the association between sucking and milk going into his tummy, preparing him for when he’s eventually ready to try feeding directly!
