Feed on

out of the isolette

now that he’s bottle-feeding regularly, benig has been moved out of his isolette and into what looks like a large tupperware bin.  the bins make caring for him much easier, since you’re not constricted by arm ports.  but, the bins aren’t heated, which can be problematic when hospital thermostats are set in the 60s.  we’ll be bringing benig some extra blankets soon.

the nurses are hopeful that he’ll do well out of the isolette.  ben’s been thermoregulating pretty well and he’s been putting on weight consistently: he’s now a robust 5 lbs and 1 oz.  i think he’s starting to look like a miniature marlon brando.
