If you have a NICU baby just know that you and your baby are a fighter. It's so hard to see him in there and not have those newborn moments with him yet. Only things I can do with him right now is skin to skin and now just officially got to hold him for the first time being swaddled. Those little NICU moments are the best and help keep my strength up and my hope's that he will be out of there soon. Tomorrow he would be in there for 4 weeks where I would have been 32 weeks pregnant and he would be a 32 week baby so hes not too far from coming home! πŸ˜πŸ’™πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ And even though I'm not able to bottle feed him or stick him to my breast yet to feed pumping has been the best way to connect with myself and my son since I am able to feed him with my milk and not donor milk or formula. Totally reccomend for NICU mommies! We got this! πŸ€žπŸ’―
