So glad he is doing good now! You have such a beautiful family! xo
Thank you, Kate!
I am so sorry you had to go through all of that :( It sounds traumatizing. But I'm so happy that your beautiful baby boy is healthy and at home. Thanks so much for sharing your story.
I'm not sure if I really let myself process the fact that he was in intensive care, at least not while we were actually in the hospital. It was the waiting and not knowing that was the most concerning. Once we knew what was wrong, then it became a question of "ok, now what does he have to do to get out of here". He had an IV and was very closely monitored, but thankfully never needed a breathing tube or any invasive procedures. Although, if you ask my husband, he may have a different account on how stressful the situation was. I was pretty well medicated.
Wow, Heather! How frightening for you and your family! I'm happy to hear that Logan is doing well, and that the breastfeeding is going well too. Congrats on your newest addition!
Thank you very much! I can't wait to see more about your little one on the way!
Heather, your experience sounds much like mine when I delivered my oldest son. The cord was wrapped around his neck and so they took him early. I was panicking and scared and then, the worst part, was when they took him and I wasn't able to see him for over an hour. Longest 60 minutes of my life!!Happy to see you all smiling and healthy and knowing that the doctors and nurses were able to take care of your little guy. Hugs to you all. xoxoxoxo
Yes, so stressful not knowing what's wrong, especially in that situation! Logan's cord was wrapped around his neck as well, but I don't think it really affected him since he was born via c-section. I'm glad your son was ok! It's always hard to see your child hurt or suffering.
Heather, I am so glad I got to meet Logan snuggled up in his Moby with you today! He's adorable! It sounds like a long time to wait to even know what was going on with your new baby. I would have been climbing the walls! Love all those pics and happy to hear that breastfeeding is going well. Yay for having the awesome support that you have this time around. Support makes all the difference ; )
Support really does make all the difference! I feel so blessed to have connected with so many experts through the process of building my business. Like I've said before, I'm not an expert at everything, but I know the people who are!I strive to be a recourse for new and expecting parents, and I hope that with my story people can see that it's OK to ask for help. No one is expecting you to know everything right from the start.
Sounds like he had a rough start into the world! Glad things are slowing down for you.
Thank you! It was a rough first few days, but he has been GREAT since then! I am so thankful that I didn't have to leave him at the hospital... although I'm sure I would have tried to camp out in the waiting room if that were the case.
Congrats on baby Logan!!!
Thank you :)
