Tube is Out! One Month Old!

On Monday, Owen's tube came out! He is very happy. So happy that he has increased the amount he takes by bottle from 60 mL to 80 mL. Quite the growth spurt he is going through! We met with a lactation consultant on Tuesday and Owen took 62 mL so we were given the go ahead to breastfeed 3 times per day. I wish we could have brought the lactation consultant home with us, because things haven't been as easy at home :( He doesn't have to work as hard with the bottle- it is there and comes out at a constant rate. Much easier than fighting to latch on! We are trying to be patient with one another and are determined to figure this out :)

Owen turned One Month on Wednesday. He looks great and we posted some pictures to prove it! Check out the photos on the right side of the screen. We are going to use his little car bean bag to show size perspective over the months- we hope it works out.

We are no longer elevating the bed and now using the SwaddleMe wrap at night, so our suffocation concerns have been alleviated. Thanks for the tips! No more projectile pooping stories, but Andy was peed on last night through the diaper! He was not very happy :(


  1. Oh my gosh... these pictures are amazing and he's so handsome! What a beautiful baby boy! I think you both are fantastic parents, too! Yay to all of you!

  2. GREAT PICTURES!!! Happy belated 1 month birthday, Owen. Can't wait to come over and visit again. Jane and Evan are being soooo patient, until they get to see him.
