Hey hun they usually want them to eat full bottles for 24-48 hours with out the feeding tube and they will want him to eat a certain amount my son had to eat 50cc without a feeding tube he was born 5 lbs 4oz also the Dr might keep him a little while just to make sure he is gaining weight don't be discouraged or upset if they keep him for a while since he is still small they r going to do what ever is best for u and that baby
They let my son go him at 5 lb 10 and he was in nicu for 15 days

All I could say is every baby is different. The nurse always ask me if I was really 30 weeks when he was born because they can't believe he's doing so good in just 3 weeks.

I just have that feeling that he's gonna come home soon you know. Im just so happy :')

I had my son at 34 weeks he was doing good 2 how many days has he been in nicu? He only had respiratory distress syndrome he just need to breath on his own it's crazy to see all those babies that have been there for months and I was crying and upset with my baby for 15days

His weight shouldnt matter much as long as he.passes the car seat challenge and eats good! My son was 4.3 lbs when we left the hospital..he wasnt in the nicu but he was a preemie born at 33 wks.  Good luck and its going to be great when he comes home!!!!

He's been in the NICU 21 days ! But for me time is going by fast ! Hopefully , i get to have my chunky boy home soon ! I want to be able to wake up with him here with us. Im gonna cry , the day he gets to come home. Tears of joy ♡

If this is how i feel of him being in the NICU , I imagine how worse I would be if he ever chooses the career of a soldier. Nooooo
His mommas boy ,  :')

Thank You all ! GOD IS GOOD ! ♡

So happy to here that, my son wasn't premature but he spent two weeks in nicu! The day he was born he had a hole in his lung (which healed) and he also had five seizures which stopped THANKFULLY. But he is super healthy. I know what your going through. :) stay strong mamas.
