Anxiety over Taking Baby off Monitor

Hayley - posted on 01/26/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hello! My son was born at 25 weeks, spent 3 months in the NICU and went home on a pulse oximeter and oxygen. He is doing amazing since he's been home for 2 months! Growing, eating like crazy, starting to smile and almost rolling onto his side. He has been on oxygen only at night for the past 3 weeks and I'm starting to feel anxious about when they take the oxygen away, because then the monitor will go as well. He sleeps beside me in bed, but since he's been sleeping almost all the way through the night I feel like I won't hear him if he is having problems.

Has anyone else experienced this with their preemie? Did anything help you once the monitors and oxygen was all gone?

Thank you for your help!
