No NICU time. We were only in the hospital 4 days (because I wasn't released, not because of them). Health issues... They couldn't eat & breath at the same time at first, which we were taught a certain way to feed them, and all was fine. They were bottle fed from birth... Eating between 5 and 10 mL a time (our goal was for 8mL a time, but we rarely made it). They couldn't regulate their body temps well, so we had to keep them bundled up, all the time. They had jaundice, but not bad enough were they had to go under the lights... Just putting them in the window was fine.
Jake wasn't breathing when he came out, but his Pedi used a BVM on him, and he started breathing on his own. Other than that, they've reached several of their developmental milestones later that most full term babies, but that was to be expected. They're 15 months old now, and still can't stand unassisted. Our next Dr appt is this Thursday, and I'm hoping we get answers to that, and get them into therapy, if they need it, but at their last appt he wasn't worried about that yet, either. Any more?
