Caring for Your NICU Preemie

Are you a preemie mama, feeling powerless as your baby stays for weeks on end in the NICU? A dear friend of mine had the same experience. Her challenges during her daughter’s NICU stay, and her dedication to caring for her during those trying months, has spurred me on to explore more of what the world of preemie care is like. It is unfamiliar territory to me, as my little man was 9lb 4oz at birth!  I know that preemie moms need special encouragement and assurance during the uncertain and scary times of waiting for their babies to grow strong enough to come home.

In the spirit of this endeavor, I’ve compiled a few links that I hope will be helpful to preemie moms.
