Can any of you tell me how your experience was after taking your preemie home?
Were you scared, did you watch their every move and jump with their every cry?
How do you handle knowing they are much more susceptible to everything?
How did you handle the multitude of friends and family who 1) insist on coming by to see them and 2) feel they know best because they already have children ( who were not preemies)?
How do you handle day care if you had to go back to work? Are there places more qualified to handle preemies and if so are they sterile enough to handle their weak immune systems?
I'm interested any anyone's experience who's currently doing it or just recently.
