wasn't sure where to put this but thought it was a lovely story that i wanted to share.... Quoted A BABY girl born at just 23 weeks and given a five per cent chance of survival has been allowed home. Jessica Hawkins was a tiny 1lb 7oz at birth and remained on a ventilator for four weeks.

Comfort sucking

Quoted Originally posted by Michelle she gets easily distracted by noises and turns her head, taking my nipple with her mine do this...who'd have thought your nipple could stretch that far eh!!!! one of my girls used to do the comfort sucking thing and would only sleep on me, does C have a dummy? i used to keep them close to me but switch my nipple for the dummy but keep them close so they thought they were still latched on, it worked and gradually over time i was able to hold them not as close...

Hospital Bag List

Quoted Originally posted by Bells Kitchen roll is the most underestimated of all baby 'must haves'. It's great for drying your own bits after labour, for putting under baby's bot on cold changing mats, for catching puke, stemming the flow of a squirty nipple and probably a hundred other things. so true i always have a roll down the side of the sofa, tissues fall apart way too easily!! i always have some folded up in my change bag too for when i'm out and about!

Washing and Sterilising after 12 months old

Quoted Originally posted by mrsjasper .........at this age they shove everything in their mouths anyway so whats a few more germs! if i'm honest i'm not a strict steriliser at all, the girls drink their juice from avent magic cups but i just wash them with hot soapy water, i don't sterilise my boobs before each feed so kinda don't think its such a great deal. obviously i ensure everything i give them is clean and i do occassionally sterilise but since they've started crawling its kinda pointles...
