Natalie was pleasantly surprised when the NICU staff offered to allow her to do some special "rooming-in" right by the NICU. There are a couple of rooms sponsored by generous benefactor families. As available, the parents can have a room for a night when their baby is in the NICU. Natalie lucked out and they gave her the room for the past three nights. The rule is only one night but since they were not in demand they let her have it. This is to help facilitate breastfeeding. The double surprise came when they decided to take Avery off oxygen and let her have him in her room. They wheeled the monitors in and they are just a phone call away if she needs them. They will also check in on the baby regularly.

It's nice to see the staff go out of their way to help this little family. Right now it's a day at a time and she may not be able to keep the room but it was very nice for her last night. The NICU nursing staff has been great!
