Each day we get to cuddle with Hugh outside of his isolette (incubator bed thing). It’s a bit of an ordeal to transfer him, so they like to limit it to once a day following a care time (diaper change, temp check, feeding, etc). All the wires and the finicky CPAP on his nose are cumbersome, so it’s sort of bittersweet. But it’s mostly sweet and the best part of the day, and I think he likes it. Looking forward to the time we can hold him without all the attachments, and whenever we want!
