Now introducing....Riley Daniel Ferraro
Riley "Ry" Daniel Ferraro (baby B) was born second. He was the biggest of the group and the first boy. He was situated in the middle right inside Meryl. He was the hardest one to get out because his arm kept getting in the way when the doctor was pulling him out of Meryl. I think he liked the comfort of the womb. He is pretty mellow so far and seems to be taking advantage of a lot of sleep. Today, I got to hold him for about an hour (see picture below). When he came out, he needed CPAP assistance to breath for about 24 hours. But, he is off the CPAP and doing great now. He has already started small feedings (2-5 ml per feed - about 1/2 to 1 tsp per feeding).
Stats: Riley was born at 11:02am, weighing 4 lbs, 6 oz and measuring 17 1/4 inches.
