That is awesome! We took our laptop w/webcam in the NICU sometimes to skype with my mom since she couldnt come inside and both of them told us we were the first ones to ever do it

I wouldn't have slept at all if I had that! I'm not sure if it is a great thing or a bad thing? But I also know there were plenty of times when I so wished I could just see her and I couldn't be there. I would have also freaked out if she'd stopped breathing while I was watching her (I know there were lots of times I wasn't there and she stopped breathing and they had to resusitate her). I'm just not sure about it.

That is a really good point, if you saw something not good going on, that would be horrifying. I have a feeling that a lot happened at the NICU that it's a good thing I didn't see, or my PTSD would be worse now!

I guess for me since he was 1.5-2 hours away and dh and i only have one car, and since he was born in winter, and we had the worst snowstorm we've ever had when he was a couple weeks old and i basically just couldnt get there except for every 2-3 days... thats why i would have liked it.

It'd be nice to have at times, but sad at others. I know for a fact that there were at least a couple times that no one even peeked in at Ari for over 2 hours.
