|Standard NICU position does not leave much room for comfort|
There is very little you can do when your baby is in a plastic womb, other than watch. A few things that we found I'm going to share with you today.
|Comforting him during tube change|
|Swaddling makes a difference|
|Max Blankets, He loved to prop his foot up|
|Swaddle plus passy? yes please!|
Two of the last 3 would be layed flat to cover each end if the bed. The last blanket would have it's ends tucked over to cover the over lap of the two flat blankets.
All of this helped keep his legs and arm snuggled up close to him in a "swaddled" possition.
|Frog (pillow) and snugglie, two of our "happy things" :)|
We belive that it helped keep him calm and kept him from getting the flat "NICU" head. Don't forget that he was there 5.5 months. :)
What names do you have for an incubator?
