Kaiser Permanente announced yesterday evening that mom and the octuplets continue to do well.

Kaiser Permanente’s Bellflower Medical Center also reports that five of the babies are now breathing room air, while three are getting oxygen through a tube in their nose. It is anticipated that soon all babies will be off assisted oxygen.

Of the eight babies, four currently are being tube-fed donated breast milk, one less than earlier reported. A baby had an intolerance to the breast milk, and feeding was held. All babies are receiving an intravenous nutritional combination. We expect the three others to begin tube-feeding donated breast milk soon.

The six boys and two girls, who were born on Monday, January 26th, weighing between 1 pound, 8 ounces and 3 pounds, 4 ounces, remain in their incubators.

Mom saw her babies last night, but has not yet held them. Mom will also start pumping milk to save up for her babies soon.
