“Some people never meet their hero I gave birth to mine”
Ella was born on the evening of 18th February 2009. At the time we were discharged from the hospital, twenty-four hours later, she had only taken a couple of ounces of milk. The midwives re-assured us that some babies are slow to feed and that she will be fine.
Lucas (we call him Luke or Lukie) was born May 13th 2008 as a healthy full term baby. Luke never ate as much as we tried to force him. On day 2 we realized he had never passed meconium (the first stool that most babies pass with in the first few hours of being born). That night the gas built up and put pressure on his lungs causing him to turn blue and needed oxygen.
