Veronica still has not tried a bottle yet as they are still hoping to get her off of CPAP. As far as I'm concerned there is no rush to bottle feed. I am secretly hoping they will just wait until she gets to the point when we could give nursing a try. After five breastfed babies, it feels so wrong to offer a bottle first.
Two days ago Veronica had a blood transfusion because she was anemic, a common occurrence for micro preemies. We were not necessarily surprised that she needed the transfusion, just a little disappointed. I can never get used to the idea of Veronica being poked and prodded. But the good thing is that it's over now and the transfusion helped her saturation level (i.e. fewer desats). Hopefully that will be the last transfusion she needs for the rest of her life.
