Kangaroo Care

I just got back from the NICU.  It was the best visit yet!  I got to hold her skin to skin for a whole hour!

During the hour we got to turn her Oxygen down from 40% to 30%.  I sang songs to her and we enjoyed our time together!

Yay!!! Glad you got some kangaroo time with her. I know whenever I would get to hold Evan, his Sats went up, resp rate went down and basically all his stats were perfect. Nothing like a mommy to fix all that ails the baby! I know she loved getting to be in her favorite spot. praying she makes a big improvement so she can start nursing soon and get even more good stuff from her mama to help her get better quicker. I love your peace about everything! You're so inspiring, Mrs. Boudreaux!
