Aah I've just seen this thread after checking our tri3 one numerous times for news of Niamh. So glad to see she's off a ventilator and with her eyes open, it all must have been (and still be) so terrifying for you all. What and little trooper she is. I hope she continues to show them all how strong and brave she is. She's so gorgeous. My first was in neonatal for 5 days when he was born then 10 days on a childrens ward and that was terrifying enough, I can't imagine how you feel. Zachary was taken off to neonatal for tests on the day he was born due to breathing issues and it was like history repeating itself, he was gone about 5 hours and I was terrified it was all happening all over again but thankfully not, I was more ill than he was.

I hope all everyone else is okay

We're still in PICU but she will hopefully transfer to a ward in the next few days, to say it has been a traumatic experience has been an understatement and feel like I could really do with some counselling now, her stoma is working well and they plan to reverse it some time around Easter. The problem we're having now is she won't take a bottle were not sure if she's forgotten how to suck on the teet or having difficulty swallowing after the ventilator but will keep trying to see if she picks it up, until then they will keep on feeding her through the tube in her nose.

Hope you are all doing well and enjoying your first few weeks with new babies xxx

So glad things are improving. I can only imagine how traumatic it's been for you. I'm sure it's going to take a while for her to really recover and even longer for you to recover emotionally but things are moving the right direction at least. Hugs

Hi ladies. Finally found you!
So pleased to hear Niamh is doing better.

Eliza has gone from 6lbs11.5 to 8lbs2!
She seems huge to me now lol. Can't believe how fast she's grown in just 4 weeks!
We are still struggling to get into a routine with the night feeds. Hubby is useless on less sleep and I struggle to wake up through the night. Still, we're gonna keep working on it

1 week old


4 weeks old

Aw so cute! Our little man was 10lbs 5oz at birth but then lost a pile in the first 4 days and has been slow gaining so at this rate Eliza will overtake him!

Niamh's condition has deteriorated a little again her stomach won't pass the food along to her intestines and keeps vomiting it all back up she's lost a lot of weight she's now below her birth weight and is very thin, we've been in hospital 5 weeks now but not giving up hope we will get her home soon, hope you are all enjoying newborn baby cuddles

So sorry to hear this. I was hoping that once things had improved it would just keep getting better. Will she need surgery again? Thinking of ypu all. Hugs

Yes she will need surgery again it could possibly be sooner than later now as she is becoming malnourished,m we had hoped things were looking up too but we've just come across more problems, she's been so good though! There's a little boy in here who's breaking my heart he is 1, his parents come for 10 mins a day, they didn't even turn up at all on his birthday and when they rang last night to ask them to come as he was unwell they didn't show its so sad he keeps crying I just want to pick him up and give him a wee cuddle

Oh mummy I'm so sorry to see your still going through all this with Niamh. I hope your sweet little girl gets well soon and can go home with you sooner rather than later.

Big hugs xxx

Poor boy thats heartbreaking.

I hope if she gets the surgery sooner it helps. Our boy has been very slow gaining weight due to digestive issues and allergies and isn't back to his birth weight yet. That has been stressful enough. Can't imagine what you are feeling. This has been our 3rd baby with problems gaining weight and if its any comfort one thing I have learned is that lack of weight in itself takes a long time to do harm. DD went from the 95th percentile to below the 3rd. At first we were scared by people saying it would effect her devlopement and cause brain damage etc but she was otherwise healthy and far ahead on most mile stones. Once things got better she caught up quickly and is big for her age now. Obviously its different in your case as Niamh is so poorly so its not just the weight you are worried about.

Well finally some good news, she's gained 3ounces!! Woohoo! Still a way to go but it's a good start and she seems to be tolerating the milk well so far thank you all for asking about her the hospital can be quite lonely and isolating at times so the encouragement has really helped! Also I live seeing your baby pics and gearing all about them jeep them coming X
