Now, there are hundreds... maybe millions... of articles on the best products for a newborn. They can be outrageous or simple. There are many items that we bought before Scarlett was born that we simply did not use.
Finally our follow up appointment with Dr. Rama came. We had also spent the last three weeks trying to find as much information as we could about Scarlett's conditions. You would think that it would be easy in this day and age. Wrong.
A few hours later, off we went back to the hospital. We get to the check in window and let them know our last name. That's when the lady says, "Are you sure you are in the right place?" We look at her completely confused and promptly ask where our baby is, if she is not where we left her.
I was running myself ragged between the fourth and fifth floors of the hospital. All I wanted to do was hold my baby, which I had not done since the pediatrician took her for her check the morning before.
When we got to the NICU, Scarlett was hooked up to monitors immediately. We were scared but just wanted to find out what was wrong with her.
You have to laugh, especially if you are a parent. If you can't learn to laugh at some of the situations you end up in... you're going to go crazy.
