Once I got there, they gave me a student nurse who couldn't locate a heartbeat for twin A at all. The next hour was almost a blur, but from the time that I had arrived to one hour on the clock, the twins had been born and I was waking up from my first c-section. I had already given birth naturally to 5 other children, so this was all new to me. During our time in the NICU, I came into contact with Goumi Kids, they reached out to me and asked if I would like a pair of their mitts! This product was very helpful for me because our twins were constantly pulling their feeding tube and oxygen tubes out. The mitts also prevented them from scratching their perfect little faces. That was a product we loved having because it made the nurses jobs so much easier and prevented the boys from being deprived of oxygen.
The twins were in the NICU for 38 days, the time there was quiet, it was almost soothing to me, having that very special one on one time with my twins that I probably wouldn't have gotten if they had come home as term babies.
I hear so much negativity about the NICU and how it isn't a place that people want to be.. I wish someone had told me with a positive mind that the NICU is actually a great place for bonding time with your baby. Of course, in the beginning it is very scary, the uncertainty of everything, but when our twins reached the "feeder grower" status, I actually learned to enjoy the quiet, love the moments where the monitors weren't going off and the peace.
