Is Skipping the incubator for immediate skin to skin better for preemies?
**** We sure think so. We won awards on the unit for the number of hours we did kangarooing with them. We didn't do it for the prizes but it was still fun to be acknowledge that the chairs hurt, your backs got sore, it had to be relatively quiet. I miss those days some. But I don't miss the oxygen problems, fears of a brain bleed, or fears a heart valve not healing. We started skin to skin as soon as we could possibly touch them. <3
