Re: Question about hospital stay

My DD was in the hospital for her whole 5 months and trust me she wore clothes. She wore a ton of clothes. DS was in the hospital for 6 days and he couldn't wear anything in the Oxyhood (because it is hot and humid) but he could wear things once his UA line was pulled (umbilical line). I can't remember exactly what he wore for those few short days after that but I know he wasn't ever in hospital stuff... just like his sister.

Good luck! I hope you don't get another NICU stay. Even if you think your prepared for them, they are never easy.
