New Parent Chronicles: Baby’s First Night Home

Our baby boy was discharged from the NICU a couple of days ago. Although it was a joyus occasion, Hubby and I were very nervous because we didn’t have his monitoring system or RN to assist us anymore. Moreover, Hubby and I spent most of the day bonding with him just as we’ve done while he was in the NICU. We followed the same care routine as well by checking his temperature and changing his diaper before feeding him.

At night, we found ourselves staying up late holding baby boy because he refused to sleep in his bassinet. Every time we tried to lay him down to sleep he would cry. We decided to exchange the bassinet for another model because he seems to hate the one he has now.
