6 babies in a bed
At first glance this photo might look neat and tidy as all our preterms are wrapped in their nests waiting for the ward round but seriously…..we have 5 babies on each bed today in the preterm corner! Imagine the squeeze when the mamas came back to feed their little ones and do kangaroo!!!!
The term side was worse with 6 babies in each bed!
And one tiny little newcomer had no bed at all and sadly had no one available to do Kangaroo so we made a make-shift bed in a tray and kept it warm over the oxygen machines?!?!
We are so thankful to everyone who donated towards our neonatal cots so far, but we still have a long way to go before we have enough money to buy all the cots we need to give these tiny people the proper care they deserve.
