At the ABC KIDS EXPO this October, I met City Mommy Kerri Jablonski and she introduced me to It\’s a Preemie Thing, an online resource and boutique that supports preemies. Their goal is to “help you spend more time with your little ones and less time searching the web for the speciality preemie baby items you’ll need in the NICU and at home.”
After writing my post yesterday on Baby Girl Wish: To Hold You I thought the following Facebook post from It’s a Preemie Thing was appropriate.
One of the hardest things to accept as a NICU parent to preemies is having to get permission to hold or even touch your baby(ies). No parent should have to get a nurse’s permission for that! I remember vividly getting excited on days I could hold my son and loved when we were able to go past an hour a day. Please support March of Dimes research and laws that help all babies be born healthy and full term.
I’d like to encourage you to learn more about the March Of Dimes and support the bill.
