inspire.com/groups/preemie



A community of preemie and micro preemie parents. Nothing like here. Everyone there can relate to what you're currently living through.....offer advice/support /real life experience etc. Life saver for me.

You know how no one in your life really knows what it feels like....to have nicu babies? These people do.

My oldest and youngest both were. My oldest because he was born at 36 wks ,had trouble breathing on his own and was jaundice, he stayed in the nicu for 10 days. My youngest was born 3/8 of this year at 36 wks 6 days via emergency c section and spent one week due to breathing issues. Both are doing great at almost 6 years old and 5 weeks :)

My youngest son spent his first month of life in there also.  He was born with pneumonia. He is now a happy and healthy 10 year old. Glad your son is okay.

My water broke very early which put me on bed rest ( long story short) ended up induced early due to life threatening infection. Because of loss of amniotic fluid her lungs were under developed and she needed nicu care.

How's your son doing??

My nephew was born at 26wks 1lb6oz. He was in nicu for 3 1/2mnths. He did good though and has no issues now at almost 2. He is kinda short for his age but really healthy weight wise. It took him longer to crawl and walk but you couldnt tell now!

all 3 of mine were. my older 2 were born at 33 weeks and 35 weeks. im type 1 diabetic, and i had hellp syndrome. theyre all healthy happy kiddoes now though. my oldest has asthma, but so does my husband so i doubt it has anything to do with his nicu stay

My eldest is a NICU baby! He was born at 30 weeks, had to be on a ventilator briefly. Then he contracted a staph infection. We almost lost the little guy but he is so strong! He stayed in NICU for about 1 month before we could take him home.
