how did you cope with seeing them hooked up to all the machines? what did you do when you left the hospital and they had to stay there and you came home and saw all your baby's stuff? didn't that just make you wanna brake down? did you feel like something you did made them that way and that its your fault some how?
My baby is still in the NICU after 4 days,and I haven't brought her home yet, how can I take my mind off the guilt and pain? I go the the hospital everyday,and stay there and watch her with all those wires and cods,and it's really getting to me,what can I do?

Hello, sweetie.Â I know exactly what you are going through, also.Â My little girl came 5 weeks early -my first and only pregnancy-and I was totally surprised when she came out and I knew immediately that she was a Down Syndrome child.Â Gracie was hooked up to all kinds of wires. Â She had jaundice and had to wear a mask for phototherapy.Â It was failure to thrive for several days.Â It was not easy to bond with her , being in the hospital for 11 days. Everybody I knew was praying for her.!!!! (She also had a hole in her heart which sealed up after one year.)Â
By all means talk to your baby-your baby will hear your voice- and touch and hug your precious little one..Â Touching tenderly and talking in a sweet soothing voice encourages!!!!! .Â I will be praying for your little one, you, and the ones surrounding , loving and helping the both of you.
