How are Jonah's hands doing now that they are completely unwrapped? Can he pick up and play with toys without hurting himself?
So in a way, not so good. But it could be so much worse. The very first time I tried unwrapping his hands (soon after we came home from the hospital), they swelled up completely and blisters encased many of his fingers. So we are thankful for this! They have new blisters every day. Sometimes we have a great day where I only have to drain one or two little ones, and sometimes it's really bad and I have to drain ten to twelve blisters... some of them being the big, angry blood blisters.
He can grab (still working on this one) and play with toys, but we try to keep them on the soft side. He has just started shaking things and patting things within the last couple weeks, so we are excited to see that. He is still unable to hold heavy things. I may or may not have let him attempt to hold my cell phone. It may or may not have dropped on his face. I couldn't rightly say.
I don't see a direct connection between holding/playing with toys and increased blistering. I think he does most of it by rubbing his hands together, rubbing his hands on us and things around him, and chewing on his fingers.
