I pray your baby brother is okay.
My older sister, born prematurely in 1929, is alive today. Her twin was still-born. "Bathe her with olive oil and wrap her in flannel." "She probably won't live more than 3-4 days, as she's only about a pound," the doctor told my mom.
Whether the underweight birth was due to smoking or something the mother did, or not, now it's over and time to enjoy that new little bundle.
The mom may have the after birth baby blues. I did after my first baby. A flood of tears would come on all at once and I couldn't explain why as I was so very happy to have that little guy. Later I learned it was just due to hormones.
Congratulations to all of you.
