We found out the night before last that the doctors have begrudgingly decided that Alexander can start trying to breastfeed. No bottles yet, only boobies. Any feeding time that we can't be at the hospital, they're still feeding him through his tube.

Turns out, they had come to this decision on Tuesday, but nobody bothered to tell us. We had caught the doctors on their evening rounds and asked about the feeding situation, and they were like, "Didn't they tell you? I thought we decided to give it a try." Then they went looking in his records to get verification. The notes in his paper chart weren't even consistent, or even, in some cases, legible. Someone finally looked in the computer and found the order.

So, yesterday afternoon, [livejournal.com profile] kadiera got her first opportunity to breastfeed him. We had one of their breastfeeding specialists on hand, in case we had any issues, but both mother and baby took to it naturally.
