Colds suck! Breast milk makes good nose drops- much better than saline. I remember letting mine sleep in a bouncy chair- I would sleep beside them. Keep an eye on pees- you want 6-8 wet dipes a day- much less than that and dehydration is a worry. Hang in there!

Uriver, my little guy has been stuffed up pretty much since birth. He's way better now then at first. His nose has cleared, but still has snot in his throat. He's actually thrown up a few times from it and he's not a spitty baby.

Other then that, I love this little guy. So fun to hold. I've had to use the sling to get stuff done now that I'm doing more. He's over 3 wks now. Time flies! smile.gif

Uriver, I hope everything turns out ok!! (((hugs)))!!!!! My baby has a murmur they heard the day after she was born. They sent her for an echo and she has a hole between her ventricles. It's not affecting her right now so we're just watching it. She's supposed to have another echo when she turns 2 months. If it doesn't close they'll have to do surgery but they told us that most of them close on their own.

 

I hadn't really stopped bleeding but it had gotten down to brown mucus for the most part for a couple days. Then yesterday I started back up again. I think it's actually my cycle starting. :( I started by 6 weeks with all of my other babies but I had hoped it wouldn't this time. I'm 5 weeks and 3 days post partum today. *sigh*

M Anna I've never gotten my period while nursing so I feel for u.
Hello everyone. Cole is 5 mo on the 10 th already. Dang!! He is the best baby ever. Ex. At church today there was a play and he just sat on our laps for 2 hours watching the stage. He is my sweetheart!! Nursing, no food yet. I'd say he is a little behind with milestones so we r getting him checked out. My supply is half what it was with my first. Oh well. I feel that engorgement post stillbirth has something to do with it. I didn't get baby blues at all but seeing cole makes me think of Jackson soo much. I feel like thanking Jackson for Cole. Very thankful.

Hugs Uriver! My youngest has some cranial nerve damage but it isn't holding her back from meeting her milestones. Sorry you are having to go through this!

They're still there. One is still on O2 all the time and sitting up or his sats drop in the 80's. The other is not on O2 but hasn't gotten rid of his fever.

All 3 of my boys had pnemonia and rsv and were quarentined isolation at 2 months old. Scary as sh*t. You can see how it could cause sids. I'm happy you're in hospital and not trying to cure it at home. Oxygen levels are f*cking scary. Seeing a was healthy baby so tired on oxygen f*cking scary.
I barely take miss rose out or invite people over probably because of that experience. Hey did you wash your hands, was that a cough? Prayers, hugs, love Uriver

8 might be enough

Praying for the poorly babies.

Do you know what makes me angry. People saying to me that I should take saffron out and let her be exposed to bugs to 'build her immunity' erm no way, look at what a cold can do to these poor little things. And this is coming from family that knows saffrons just spent 11 weeks in nicu. Honestly it makes me so mad.

The same person then said could I breastfeed whilst she drove the car. I was like Nooooo you can wait 5 mins for the baby to feed then we'll put her in the car seat. Crazy things to say.

Me and hubby, plus ds 6, angel dd, little mc angels and finally our little rainbow baby, 30 weeker miracle.

Poor thing river. What's her weight now? Yes maybe a blessing in disguise that they've been able to identify the other issues. Thinking of you.
