Jackson was fitted with the NAM yesterday. This was the first step in the process. Next week he will be getting fit with the nasal portion of the device. The process of getting the NAM to fit well without irritating Jackson’s mouth was fairly long and tedious. We arrived at the clinic at 1:00pm and didn’t leave the hospital till around 4:30pm. But Jackson was a rock star, barely crying throughout the whole procedure (meanwhile, we were hearing the screams of the other babies in neighboring rooms). He was complimented by the doctor, saying that he is a very adaptable baby.

It has been a fairly long day today trying to get Jackson to eat as he is not used to the changes. And he can’t seem to stay awake. Yesterday must have worn him out. We were advised that learning how to eat with the NAM could be a process, so we’ll see how this goes. Hopefully our ‘adaptable’ baby will adapt very soon. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
