Feeling Antagonistic

I’m feeling antagonistic toward the NICU staff, which I know isn’t entirely fair. Most of them are really sweet, but a couple of them really frustrate me.

Addah is supposed to be moved to an open crib today. Her NICU isolette is being weaned down to 27º C from 32º C. At 3 o’clock this afternoon, it was raised back up a degree because she’s still too chilly. She latched on right away today and nursed like crazy on both breasts, but I was lectured by a disapproving nurse because since she nursed so well, she can’t finish the last 10 ccs in her bottle. I don’t think it should “count against her” since she did nurse so well; apparently the nurse disagrees.

I can’t wait to come home with my little one.

Feeling antagonistic, but happy to hold my little one!
