Another momentous 24 hours. Noah started breastfeeding yesterday, much to Kirsty's relief (top photo). I started him off by dipping a dummy in some milk and accidentally spilt a drop, followed by a reprimand from the nurse - "don't you know that's liquid gold" - she's right, it is. I can already see him gaining strength every day. He also came off light therapy yesterday (Sunday) and his IV drip this morning. This was fantastic because it meant we got to dress him up in his own clothes for the very first time! He's only got one tube to go - that which is entering his nose then stomach to top up his feeds (bottom photo). I'm sure today he'll figure out what he needs to do to get it out, and will be back in our room by this evening.
It was wonderful to see Jake and Abbey's reactions to their new cousin yesterday. They're great kids and so excited - they even started dancing.
Oh yeah, I changed my first nappy this morning (middle photo).
