Sleep Interrupted

Last night was our first rough night. We stopped swaddling Gus so tightly so that he can start to wake himself up and guess what, he did! We also switched his feeding from this tube and syringe to a tube and bottle. It's complicated. To ensure that Gus is getting enough of my milk we are feeding him with this tube contraption. Rich and I had our system down pat, until last night.

Thankfully sweet Gus is doing great. He's weight is up as is his appetite. It's amazing that at day 9 he's already changing so much. Until now Gus has been an inside baby. Living like he's still in the womb. Now with clothes on and no swaddling, he's coming to life. Our quiet little man is growing up!
