Hello Bryan, yes it sure is wonderful that Mikaela is home with her parents.
I would like to help explain what occurred during the breast feeding, and I
hope that it will make you feel better about what took place. During the
first breast feeding Erika the Mom realized herself that the baby was having
difficulty breathing and on her own moved Mikaela and asked the nurse for
help in repositioning the baby. This is a very common problem with new moms
in breast feeding. Because of there being such a small area of space between
their nose and mouth, and the size of the breast, it is easy to cause
breathing difficulty. Mikaela did not require any help in breathing via any
special treatment, or in any other way. The only thing needed was to
position her differently. If you are a new mom you do not really know how to
do this. What is needed to be done is to hold usually two fingers pressing
down on the to keep it away from the nostril of the infant. Most hospitals
have a lactation nurse who will first help new moms showing them all the
different methods in feeding.
