Day 18 in the NICU...

.:Holding Mama's Thumb:.

.:Open Air Crib:.

Our little one is getting bigger and stronger every day! He is now 4 pounds and 5 ounces and is in an open air crib. He is also eating all of his meals either from the breast or bottle and his feeding tube came out today. We are still looking at his NICU discharge being June 30th (though I am hoping for Ss Peter and Paul's feastday - June 29th). Fr John and I really need to kick preparations for his arrival into high gear! We have to set up his co-sleeper, the baby swing, wash blankets, put in the carseat, get teeny preemie diapers, and put the carseat into the car. I am sure that there is more to do! We are so excited!

I'm so glad your little man is doing so well! I remember when our P-man got to be in an open air crib - it was so wonderful to be able to walk in an pick him right up! Enjoy getting everything ready for his homecoming!

My sister in law had purchased some preemie diapers for me since my older two needed them and we figured my new baby boy would, too. Turns out he fit right into newborns. Would you like me to see if she still has the preemie diapers? I'd be happy to send them your way. You can e-mail me at seamstresslady at yahoo dot com.

Hooray for open air cribs!

I have some preemie diapers left over too, if you'd like me to send them your way. Also, Owen has almost grown out of his preemie clothes, so I'd be happy to pass those along as well. calee m lee at gmail.com

I am so glad that he is doing well and getting lots of Mama's milk.

I know that at Diapers.com you can get premie diapers with DIAPERBUXS you can get $10 off your first order and free 2-day shipping.

On the website, they are advertising free 2-day shipping and $5 off your order over $49 with the code: NEW5 (first purchase only).

I hope that helps!

I'm so happy to hear how strong and big he is! Less than a week until he is home! How exciting.

Congratulations!
Would you, when you get a chance (and no rush) send me an email?

Wonderful new! I'm so happy to hear that he is doing so well. Not too much longer. Can't wait until he's home with you.

Patty said...

Congrats! I'm so excited for you to be able to take him home!

Michelle said...

Wow! Only 5 days to go! I cannot wait to come and see him in his proper place... home with his family!

Whoa, wait, what??? I need to read blogs more often. I totally missed that your baby was a preemie. I obviously have some catching up to do.
Mine was way premature too - congrats on the open-air crib, that was a huge milestone for us!

Do you have any tips on getting through a NICU stay? I am one week in and feel that it will never end.
