My baby girl was born at 34 weeks and 2 days. She is now 16 days old. She spent 8 days in the NICU, which I think was not enough time, but she was doing really well so they sent her home last Sunday. We ended up back in the hospital the following Thursday because she had some episodes where she would choke while she was eating and her lips turned blue. I started becoming afraid to feed her because I didn't know what to do. While at the hospital they did an x-ray to check if she had acid reflux and it showed she did have some. They gave us preemie nipples and told us to feed her less food more often and keep her upright 20-30 minutes after eating. She started to do well and we got to come home this Saturday. She's getting better at eating, but she forgets to breath and she's on oxygen. We have to pace her by taking out the bottle so she can catch her breathe. It's so stressfull, especially at night. She eats every 3 hours. The past two night she's kept us up because she gets fussy. She seems to cringe like she has tummy pains. My husband and I are both exhausted. Any advice? We're going to see our pedi tomorrow and for now she has recommended we buy some drops for gas. I hope it works. I'm just glad I found someplace where people can relate to these issues.
