One of the best things we did with Erin was to introduce gentle touching to her face when she could handle light touch. We did it while she was in the NICU and when she was tube fed last year.

I actually wrote a post about this on my blog (http://www.bad-mummy.com/?p=61). Bonding in the NICU is exceptionally difficult. Even if your baby isn't critical you still have no privacy to do what...

I second the starting a blog idea. When Erin was in hospital I used to send out a daily text message which would get relayed around the family. It was a pain in the butt because I really didn't want...

No advice Jenny, but I know what you mean! We're apparently okay to fly too but it scares the beegeebers out of me so we haven't done it yet.

We were in the same boat. I got my first cuddle when Erin was 6 weeks old and still vented. It really was nerve wreaking! I really do believe that kangaroo cuddles help. After each cuddle Erins'...

Our doctor didn't want to put Erin on medication either. She would vomit HOURS after her feeds and it'd be a real gizer of a thing too. He said that the medications you give them change their...

I wore Erin in a wrap, upright because of her reflux. I was concerned about the air way thing with a sling too so we didn't use those with her until she was a bit older. The wrap was fantastic for...

Erin hated tummy time with a passion. I'd be lucky for her to spent a couple of minutes on the floor before she cracked it. It seemed to help when we bought her a blow up U shaped pillow that could...

I'm sorry, I'm a bit confused. Do you mean desats that happen when the oxygen level in his blood gets low or bradys where his heart slows down?

Either way, they're both common with premmies and...

Oh! Righto, I'm not very good with all the abbreviations.
