Elizabeth is now over 3 lbs (1364 grams) and her skin is filling out. She has a double chin! She is a happy baby, rarely cries has big smiles and keeps herself busy by looking out of her isolette when she is awake.
She comes out for cuddles twice a day with her mom and dad who read her stories and sing songs (mom does most of the singing).
Reflux is still a problem for Elizabeth. During her last CPAP set-back she was again put on continuous feeds. During the week her doctors and nurses decreased changed the period of time to 1 hour (she is getting 18 ml. of milk over a period of 1 hour). She is also getting medication for the reflux, and it seems to be help. The nurses have said that she should outgrow this by 37 weeks.
Elizabeth still practices breastfeeding (with mom only) and loves it, but she gets tired. If she is able to tolerate feeds over .5 hours she will likely go to another hospital by the end of the week.
