Re: My friend just had her baby at 30weeks

Kangaroo care is the bomb! The mom's body adjusts the temp of her chest to increase or decrease the baby's temp as needed. The temp only changes on the side the baby is laying on! Put two babies on momma and her chest will be two different temps!

Re: My friend just had her baby at 30weeks

Its not just the moms body for kangaroo care, dads also is good, they have started that when they can hold her, 2 yrs ago in this hospital they would not allow it as its the same one ds was born in, so they have come along ways in 2yrs on their info

Thanks for all the prayers I know they appericate it.

I had a 34weeker(5lbs 3oz) and we spent 9 days in NICU than were home free and now at 2 (in may) hes about 29lbs and tall, hes doing great, and noone can tell he was a preemie
