It’s been a busy couple of days for Adam, he has been upgraded to his own private room, had his first bath and also taken his first few sips of water. Since having the thickener in his milk he has been doing really well although he still has his moments he does seem far more settled.
His new room is great, its private and relaxed. We have our own sink, window with curtains and front door!!! We can even take some music in for him to listen to.
It was great to be able to give him a bath, as you can guess after 51/2 weeks he wasn’t really smelling too fresh. After a small cry when he was first put in the water he really didn’t seem to mind it and he smelt wonderful afterwards.
Adam is sucking more now. To see how he handles swallowing they are giving him a couple of sips of water each day. Thankfully he seems to be taking it OK, hopefully it won’t be too long before he’ll try his first attempt at taking milk from a bottle.
