Re: Bottles and Pacifiers

My daughter Khayla (born at 28 weeks at 1 lb 12 oz in 2003) hated the Platex (dorp-ins) and gravitated towards the Avent bottles. I did not experience the leaking as others have reported. But, she loved the nipple and they were easy to clean and price is reasonable.

Re: Baby in NICU for one month now

Thank you for all the Congrats and comments. My bp is not "my" normal yet, but it is within a range that is not concerning (120s/ 80s). I think the bottom number correlates with stress, and I have been under an incredible amount of stress. It makes me feel better that most moms have difficulty breas...

Baby in NICU for one month now

Hi- I have not been on this site for quite a while. I was still pregnant and battling high bp and proteinurea.

Re : 2nd Pregnancy and scared

<t>Thank you so much! You brought up a good point. The kidney plays such an important role in maintaining bp and filtering out what we do not need vs retaining what we do need. B/c PE is associated with high blood pressure and protein output, it could very well be a major factor for woman like ourse...
