First bath

Baby in a bucket!

It was so so great to have Rose “off the grid”.  We took her off her monitors for her bath and for good measure she managed to pull out her Nasal Gastric tube… would have made for an uncomfortable procedure for her in the small hours last night but hopefully it was worth it for her.

To be able to carry her untethered felt amazing.  NICU mums often joke about running out the door with their babies when they’re on Level 2.  Very tempting.  Stupid but tempting.

It was the perfect birthday present – I enjoyed it just as much – if not more than she did.  Waiting almost 100 days for your first bath!  What patience!

    Fantastic photo. Great to see. The first of many baths. It will be even more fun once she learns how to empty all the water out!
