If you don't have a volunteer "cuddler" program, now would be great time to start one!! No, this time, I'm not kidding. (If I had my druthers, the folks who run the methadone programs would be required to show up for this activity!) If I lived anywhere near you, I'd be happy to help.
Get a "team" together and develop a drug protocal that works. Morphine, Methadine, and Tylenol can be scheduled in such a way as to keep the kids happy. Scheduled, not prn!!! Last baby I had, couldn't believe the # of times I got "he didn't get any Tylenol, I didn't think he was in pain, just hungry."
Addition of Mylicon and thickening feedings to help decrease the GI motility and irritability, i.e., diarrhea 2nd to overeating/overfeeding. As soon as his/her cord is healed, start giving tub baths.
It's a tough job, but when they finally equilibrate and start getting off the "big" drugs w/o a lot of drama, it's really rewarding.
