Thomas update - 2 weeks old

Thomas is doing really well and is now two weeks old! He is still in NICU but has been off breathing support since day 8, unlike his tiny brother who was off breathing support by day 2. It turns out tiny babies are fighters!!

Overnight last night he was moved from his incubator to a cot as he has enough chunk to keep himself warm. He has a nasogastric tube feeding him breast milk until he can learn how to breast feed properly - although he did this for 15 whole minutes yesterday - wooopeee!

It's an emotional time leaving him in NICU each day and coming home to an empty cot but the staff are amazing and are supporting us loads. Can't wait to have him and his brother home! Good look to you all! Xxx
