NICU Day 38

Baby Girl continues to do well with CPAP.  She is very comfortable with it and seems to be on lower oxygen now that she is using it.  She cuddled skin to skin with me for about an hour and a half today before she went back into her isolette. We had a heated blanket over her, but she actually got too hot, so we had to leave her uncovered.  She's getting better at regulating her temperature and she's weaning down off of the temperature controls in her isolette.  She continues to be my little rock star :)

She wore clothes for the first time today.  Rachel B put her in an awesome black and hot pink onsie that said Whoose The Cutest.  She looks so big!

  2. Does this mean I can buy her an outfit as a baby gift now?!
