Hugs, mama! I had my fourth 32 weeker January 23. He started out great compared to my others who were intubated within hours of birth. I was Able to do kangaroo care twice on his second day, Then at two days old collapsed a lung and was intubated and had a chest tube placed. During this time they encouraged us to talk to him and gently touch him. Thankfully he was only intubated for a couple days and then was off everything. Babies can be resilient and turn around quick once they figure out what they're supposed to be doing!
