Baby #3 is here.
« on: July 31, 2019, 11:04:58 am »
Baby # 3 decided to surprise all of us and come 1 month early. He needed some respiratory support for the first 6 hours, but is now on room air and hopefully will go to mama's room from the special nursery soon.

Congratulations, Jason!  I hope baby gets to go home with mom. My grandson came early, needed oxygen, and was in the special nursery. He was there for a few days after mom went home. That was really rough. He's doing okay, now. I hope recovery goes well for your wife and new baby.  Have you chosen a name?

10 days old and just got home. Mostly feeding issues. Though I doubt that in the real world babies magically drink exactly 54 mL every 3 hours, and if they do not manage it, then it must be forced down their nasogastric tube. He pulled out his NG tube himself today (good job) and had gained weight for 5 days in a row.

But the real reason I think they changed their plan of watching him for 48 hours after he drank 54 mL every 3 hours for a day was that they had 17 babies born in the last 24 hours, which is 3 X the normal amount. The next baby was coming into his nursery spot as he was leaving it. I have been part of the discharge planning process and things like that can steer a "conservative" plan to one that is more "flexible" where he doesn't have to check all of the extra boxes.
