  • hugsI am so sorry! It can be so hard not knowing what is going on. I had a baby in the nicu for 26 days :( I can tell you he is fine and strong and healthy now! Are you still breastfeeding? can you do as much kangaroo care as possible? they say your baby being close to your heart is really good. I wish your baby the best of health. Hang in there mama!

  • Have they ruled out apnea? That's what it sounds like to me. They should have checked for that when she was born and sent her home with an apnea monitor. Sounds like a sub-par hospital.

  • my daughter stopped breathing when she was first born. She was fine at first but when my hubby took her with the nurse to the nursery to get weighed and he handed my daughter to the nurse, she said "she's not breathing!" she ended up being fine, but it was such a scare!
