those petty women who whine about a nurse/s while their infant is in the neonatal unit, 

& those petty women who whined about a nurse/s in the neonatal unit, after their child had already been discharged

These women were petty. when whining about nurses who told them that can't do this/or that with their baby in the neonatal unit. nurses are their to care for babies as well as to advocate for the rights of babies while in the neonatal unit, thats the nuirses job. these women need/ed to understand that nurses that work in the neonatal unit. they never owe/d these women the right to do as they please with their own baby/babies in the neonatal unit.

Actually, its about making sure your child gets the very best.. So was it alright for the NICU nurse to tell me to leave my son alone and to stop nursing him because he was being placed for open adoption? and that im just torturing myself? NICU moms are ENCOURAGED to hold their children and to make contact with them when they are awake. Yes, I nursed my son despite him being placed for adoption, it was the only way for me to make peace with my decision. and I SWEAR IF YOU BASH ME, it will come back to you

You are wrong. My child and I will do as I see fit. Holding my baby, feeding my baby is MY duty as a mother. Just because you are a nurses doesn't mean you get to do all of this without me. If you are talking beyond that, I would have to address them individually.

When my twins were in the NICU I was always holding or touching one of them or the other... I fed them, I changed them, I bathed them and I dressed them... they're my kids. I left twice a day for the hour that they're changing shifts, but other than that I was there. I slept there, I ate there, I went home only to shower. I laid my ass back topless in a chair next to their incubators and nursed them and had skin to skin contact with them whenever I wanted.
