I just talked to the head nurse practioner on the NICU staff. She informed me that the best clothes to bring would be sleep gowns, preferably ones with snaps on the shoulders, so that all the various cords, tubes, and lines can go in/out easily. She also said to come armed with MANY- bright green spitup and a malfunctioning digestive tract leads to multiple outfit changes a day.
Does anyone know of anywhere I can find more sleep gowns? The NICU is already going to seem so sterile that I'd like to make his area as cozy as possible... with bright blankets, fun sleep gowns, toys, pictures, etc.
I found a few gowns that I love, below, at BabiesRUs, and I've found a few others but... really, I'm not having much luck.
As always, votes are appreciated. What better way to raise awareness for such a rare condition as gastroschisis?
