February 3rd

WOW! Cohen has had another big day of progress! He has moved to a open top crib AND got to put on clothes for the first time! He looked so big in the crib and clothes, it almost made me forget he is not a full term baby! It was a wonderful day, to say the least.
Cohen has had some spells today, with the excitement of moving beds and all....but he is still hanging in there at 2 liters of flow on the vapotherm and anywhere from 25-40 on his supplemental oxygen. I know I keep saying this, but hopefully they will start him with a bottle soon.
He is having some trouble with reflux, since we started supplementing with formula. My supply has gone down, but I am still working on getting it back. He is getting half formula and half my milk right now. I am a little distraught over this but trying to stay calm and hope for the best!
The progress helps me to remember there is a light at the end of this tunnel. Cohen will get to come home. I feel so blessed right now I could pop.

Love and Blessings to all of you.


  1. PUMP, PUMP, PUMP!!! Been there, done's so worth it, the best thing you can do for him right now! Call MTMC Lactation, they can help you to increase production!!! I love reading your blog every day and am always excited about his progress!

  2. Do you like tea? Another thing you can try is "Mother's Milk" tea. You can buy it in the organic section of Kroger and it helps promote lactation in women. It's all natural and caffeine free. I have some left if you would like to try it. Just let me know and I will bring it over. I wont be using it for a few years so you can have it.
