Congrats on the newb :)



DD spent 5 weeks in the NICU; hope your LO doesn't have to stay that long.



Was he having breathing issues and that's why he's in the NICU? DS was born at 36w6d and other than severe jaundice he was fine and was able to come home with me

He is adorable!



DS was born at 36 weeks and in the NICU for a week. It is hard but he will be fine dear! They will take great care of him!



Also, we looked at it this way... he was born 4 weeks early so that just means we were able to have 4 more weeks with our beautiful son than we would have had! Stay strong!

Definitely precious!



DS was admitted for breathing too. They started him off with a CPAP for oxygen. Every time we visited it seemed like they needed less and less oxygen! Also, I did a lot of kangaroo care (skin to skin) and that seemed to help a lot! So if you are able I would do that as much as possible!

Thanks for the advice I truly need it right now! I hate that he isn't with me it feels horrible to be empty handed but I know he is in good hands.

And so cute. I love little boys. There so cute. (: lol
My son was born unresponsive, then put in NICU and on a breathing machine, then not even a day old ripped out the tube for breathing and never needed it again.



Babies are super strong. He is my families prayers (: <3 <3
