Packing on the Ounces

The twins had another weigh-in on Wednesday.

Carson is now up to 5 pounds, 12 ounces (he was born at 5, 1), and Coleman is really packing on the ounces, now up to 5 pounds, 10 ounces (he started at 4, 10).

Until now, we’ve had to wake up the boys every three hours to get food into their bellies (typical, we’ve heard, with preemies), but today the doctor said that we can now let the boys sleep during the night until they’re ready to eat (in other words, grunting and/or crying).

It’s doubtful they’ll go much longer than three hours at first, but we’re eager to give them the chance to increase it!
