We're home!

Billy is doing well - eating and sleeping - on a schedule of course from his time in the NICU.

We are having some issues with breastfeeding, but I have a ped appt on Monday and a lacation consultant appt on Wednesday so hopefully we'll be able to get it all figured out. Other than day two in the NICU he has had 100% breastmilk... so the milk is there he's just not latching properly.

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!
