I do have to say though, that the NICU staff was great for the most part. The only thing that really bothered me was the girl who looked about 13 years old, with no children of her own, trying to tell me how to nurse my baby. Hello, I have done this before. I will smile and nod so you walk away, and then close the curtain around me and MY baby, and feed her the way that I want to feed her. If she falls asleep on the first boob, I will let her sleep! I will not wake my baby, if she is hungry, she will wake up and let me know. argh!
I can say that I am sooooo happy that I was only in there for a week with each one of my girls. I have so much respect for the parents of multiples and preemies that do that for months on end! They are some of the strongest people I know! I only got a glimpse of what life is like for you all, and I will say again how strong, brave, and amazing you all are!
Time to go home! I am sick of this place!
