I would rather get barfed on, peed on, and bled on in one sitting than have to smell Pregestimil or change a Pregestimil diaper. :barf01: That is truly one of the most God-awful inventions out there.

AIDS and other bloodborne pathogens aside, I think I have ya'll beat.

Once I had a senior practicum student working with me and she was shooting the air out of a big ole 60 cc syringe full of Pregestmil and it squirted in my mouth. Pregestmil. In my mouth.:eek:

I once had a dad who felt bad that his baby had to drink Preg 24, so he took a sip in some sort of misguided attempt at sympathy.

Then he turned around and puked in the trash can.

I just want to say thanks to all the caring NICU nurses. My 39 weeker was in the NICU for 10 days. I remember when they bathed her and gave her a mohawk, played dress up with her and took pics. It really warmed my heart!

Those are the best parts about being in the NICU. Some days, though they dont happen really often, can be almost...fun.
