I'll be checking in more often. it's been a rough pregnancy and I'm just glad we now have Billy safe at home. Really you don't realize how fragile life is until something like this happens. The moms I met in the NICU are so strong - I was next to a mom who's date date was the same as mine and her babe was born at 25 weeks weighing just over a lb.
I am so glad that Billy is home with you! He may not be latching properly because his mouth is too small right now. My last baby, DD, was born 35 +5 and her mouth was too small to latch properly the first month. After that, she got so much better at it! Hang in there!

welcome home Billy! I hope the visit with the LC gets everything all smoothed out. I can't imagine how hard it is to have a baby in the NICU-you must be so glad to have him home
