The Boys First Bottles...

The boys did great today with their first bottles.
Garren was first up, he drank 10cc from the bottle. That is 10cc out of 30cc, and that is a great start according to the nurses. He got the remaining 20cc through his feeding tube.

Kellan was next and he drank 11cc out of 30cc.

Caden was last, but definitely not least! He drank 15cc out of 34cc.

So we are starting out with 1 to 2 tries at the bottle a day, when they get the hang of it, we will increase the number until they are taking nothing but bottles. We were told it is usually a 2 week process.
Anyone want to bet on how long it will take our guys???

  1. Considering how well and how quickly they doing everything else, I am going to bet that it does not take them that long to get the hang of the bottle.

    They look great, you guys look great. Keep on getting rest and healing because before you know it you won't have the quiet at night at home that you have.

    How are the puppies at home doing? Have you started bring home blankets that smell like the boys to get them use to them?
