Attempting to nurse

Last night we hit another milestone, breastfeeding!!! Jacob passed out after about 30-40 minutes, but he would take 5-6 long sucks and then rest for 5 minutes or so.

We tried again for one of his feedings today and this time he made it almost an entire hour and he was sucking most of the time. He took some short pauses in between, but did a lot better than he did last night. The nurses are impressed with how well he is doing with it.

He is now 3 lbs 13 ozs and should hit 4 pounds by the end of this weekend! Stay tuned for that announcement!

That is all for today!
