The NICU Thread — The Bump
November 2018 Moms

The NICU Thread

I thought we could have this since several of us have sweet babies requiring some extra help. It's going to be very informal and of course anyone can participate. I figured this would be a great place where we can support each other, celebrate, and even cry about setbacks. 

Use this place to vent about the highs and lows of NICU life.

  • @mockingjay1  they’re actually eating (fortified bm from a bottle mostly) pretty well. not quite 80% of the feedings, but very close most days. elise better than emilia. both above birthweight (on night 8, today is day 10). they still get tube feedings sometimes if they seem particularly exhausted. i’m definitely ok with that.
