NICU Day 21

Had another "relaxing" afternoon at the NICU with Baby Girl.  I did get to cuddle with Baby Girl for about an hour before she started desatting and generally indicating she was done with holding time. She had a series of spells after her 5 o'clock feeding.  She also was pushing up out of her bed with her legs.  I don't know if we shifted back to the 30 minute feeds too quickly or what. I asked Ashley to keep a close eye on her.  Ashley said she handled this last feeding well and was happy as long as she was on her tummy.  Generally speaking, she seems to only tolerate her sides and back for an hour or so before she starts desatting until she gets put back on her tummy.
