SCN – Learning Centre for Preemies


Xi En had been transferred to another department of the SCN (Special Care Nursery)– the learning centre for preemies. Here, there are fewer nurses ratio to babies; I guessed it might be because the babies here are supposed to be more stable and ready to progress further. Anyway, we are happy that Xi En had moved on and is learning the “suck-breathe” coordination. He is currently on 5 minutes “training” every feed; but we witnessed that it really depends on whether the nurse on the duty is willing to spend quality time pacing him on. Thus, every time we are there, we make sure we are feeding him since we can definitely focus all the attention on him. Today is Kim’s turn:

Mentioned earlier, Xi En can really make himself heard nowadays. See the evidence below:

And immediately after we gave him the specially bought NUK pacifier:

Well.. whatever it takes to calm him down. 🙂
