Noah Mauldin, who was born 10 weeks too early at 1 pound 11 ounces, has gained two pounds since he was born and is now breathing on his own.

Noah Mauldin, a Racine boy who was born 10 weeks early, is now 3 pounds, 10 ounces, two pounds more than he weighed at birth.

And he could be coming home soon.

Missie Mauldin, Noah’s mom wrote this on her Facebook page:

“He’s taking every feeding orally (through breastfeeding or bottle feeding), but still has his feeding tube in and will for a little longer. He’ll be in an open air crib before we know it!”

On Monday, Missie went to the hospital to visit Noah and found out that he had indeed been transferred to an open air crib.

“Look who is in a big boy crib now!!!! I am so happy, I’ve been floating on air!”
