    thanks everyone.

    as you might imagine, mom's tired as all get out. silver lining to the NICU thing is that mom can rest a bit more than she would with a baby in tow.

    for the time being, i get the uniquely pleasant experience of diaper-changing while the NICU nurses have a chuckle at my clumsiness. good times!

    That short window passes quickly, it gets bad. However, it still has to be done. Get used to sleeping in 2 hour blocks and dreaming of the day you can add a bit of rice to the formula to stretch that window to four hours. Its the hardest and most important job you will ever do and the most rewarding. It also makes music sound funny... Songs like Simple Man and Fade In will make you tear up now.

    Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none; be able for thine enemy rather in power than use; and keep thy friend under thine own life's key; be checked for silence, but never taxed for speech.

    Just saw the thread. Congrats to all concerned. After all the excitement I'm sure you're enjoying that solid 8 hours you get every night.

    Maybe he is lucky like me. Our newborn, 9 years old tomorrow, slept through the nights right from the beginning. Nobody had to get up at night to tend to him.

    the first few nights weren't too bad; had to wake him up every 4 hours for a feeding.

    then the doc said he was gaining weight too fast, and for a glorious 3 weeks we could let him sleep through the night, with maybe a feeding in between.

    then a week and a half ago, he was "gaining weight too slow", and now has to go through 2 hour feeds-- complete misery, as the baby had to be woken up, fed a moderate amount (too much and he'd throw it up), burped, and then put back to sleep. z's statement above came true!

    cuteness keeps the baby alive!

    Gaining wait too fast, gaining weight to slow, can't say I heard that myself. Yet my son was 10lbs. 10oz. when born via C-section which is why he was C-section for a Filipina. The doc let me stand in for the surgery/delivery and the kid was big.
