My little Penga was born at 25 weeks. Her birth weight is 1 lb and 10 oz. Now Penga is 34 1/2 weeks (I've been pumping for more than 2 months so far) and weighs about 3 lb 3 oz. Penga still receives oxygen through nasal cannula and my BM through feeding tube at intervals. Both my hubby and I kangaroo her every day. My older dauther Sydney also has lots of love and supports for her little sis.
This past week, Penga licked and suckled my BM during a couple of Kangaroo sessions. Two days ago, she also opened her mouth wide and put my entire nipple into her little mouth.. then she gave me a couple of cute sucks!!!! I was ecstatic!
She has been very sleepy since then. I plan to spend more time Kangarooing her this weekend so she has enough sleep time AND alert awakening time.
I will ask many questions in the near future, I know. I just wanted to introduce myself and Penga to you all
