Nick is still off cpap and doing well with it. He is still on 4 liters. They are thinking about weening him down to 3 or possibly 2 liters on Monday. Once they do that, they will start getting him ready to take a bottle, or breast feed. Hopefully next week, I will be able to feed him for the first time (fingers crossed).
Today, I gave Nick a bath for the first time. They have special wipes for the babies. It is a process. You have to warm them up, strip him down, monitor leads and all. It was really neat to do that for the first time. He woke up and watched me the whole time. Only once did he look at me like he wasn't quite sure if I knew what I was doing. He seemed to really like his bath. He just watched me the whole time, with very little fussing. Now that I know how, I am going to give him quite a few baths while he is there. That was the highlight of my day! Sorry I don't have any photos of his bath, but my hands were a little full.
