|Carter sleeping in the incubator. He was in here for about half the time, until he could prove that he could keep his temperature up on his own without the heaters. Then, he was moved to an open crib.|
|Carter hooked up to his IV. He was given food and fluids through it for the first couple of days.|
Going into the NICU is a big process. You had to remove all your jewelry and wash your hands under scolding hot water for a minute. You cannot touch your phone or camera and then touch your baby without first washing your hands again. Only 2 visitors were allowed at a time and only the parents are allowed to hold the baby (at least at first) and then it was never as long as you wanted!
|Here you can see his tiny heart monitor.|
