  • My son was in a little bed right next to me so luckily I didn't have to go very far! I still check and make sure he's breathing right and he's 10 months old!

  • yes and even now that my daughter is 2 and my twins are1, If its a weird cough, sigh or sound I jump up and take off to their room. I am still paranoid. Not sneezes anymore though. I only did that at first because milk came up with their sneezes.

  • No the nurses assured us that he was going to cough and sneeze and that that was normal. My husband was in the room the entire time so he would check up on him because it was just to much work trying to get up and around the first night.

  • OMGsh you have no idea! Lol. My DD spent her first 2 weeks in intesive care, and had a monitors to keep track of everything! Heart rate, pulse, o2 sat., temp, etc. At first it was really annoying (lots of beeping), but I found that when they unhooked her, I was like, how will I know her heart is still beating???? It was quite scarry.

    We coslept, so she was always there, and I was always checkig on her. She is almost 2 and i still check to see if she is breathing when I get into bed.
