Mom didn't sleep the whole time the baby was there -- 2 days to make sure that no one did anything to the baby. I guess the only thing that why the baby might've been admitted would've been for the potential of a heart defect if it was a Downs kid. We didn't find anything wrong, and left the evaluation of Downs for the PCP Kids can be admitted to the NICU if they're really little and if they have "neonatal issues." The PICU takes the heart kids from the NICU shortly before they go to the OR. Basically what we did for this kid was weigh it a couple of times after mom breast fed -- we weren't allowed to give formula, we weren't allowed to start an IV, and we had to say how important it was for a couple of labs.
