The greatest feeling in the world

Has to be a mother holding her baby for the first time. I was able to hold Sebastien when he was six days old, and I’ve held him or have done kangaroo care almost every single day since.

Today, at 10 weeks old, was the first time I’ve been able to hold Samuel (besides just holding him lifted up slightly from his bed). I held him for almost a solid hour, and he did great. Hopefully he’ll remain stable on CPAP and I’ll get to hold him everyday from now on.

    Too awesome for you. I can see that you are just beaming. This good for both mom and Sam. It is the greatest, most special feeling in the world to hold your child. Glad you got the opportunity.
