Day 50 - 1220g, nIPPV Oxygen 25%

Baby Hao, you have good weight gain. You have crossed the 1200g milestone. Now, we shall aim for 1500g.

The doctor has prescripted to add in 0.6g Carborie into the breast milk. Carborie is glucose polymer module that will give you more energy. 

You are still on alternate feeding between preterm infant formula and breast milk. 

The ventilator oxygen supply has been weaned down to 25% in the morning. I believe you will continue to do well and achieve Oxygen 21% in another 2-3 days.

Everytime when you are hungry, your mouth is sucking the feeding line. The nurses said you shall be able to get out from feeding line very soon. But before you can do that, you need to get off from the ventilator

So now, you need to continue to strengthen your lung, chest muscles, abdomen muscle and improve your stamina.

A part from that will be gaining weight. Size does matter for you. Crossing 1500g is key.

Stay strong boy.

God bless!
