about prematurity

Caring for Your Baby

There is no better place for your baby than home with you! But you may be feeling a bit nervous. Remember: All parents feel a little jittery when they take their new baby home.

Feeding Your Baby

Feeding is the central activity between parent and baby. Itís a time when relationships are developed and bonds are strengthened.

As Your Child Grows

What is normal development? Learn the milestones to look for up to 2 years of age. Find out where to go for special help if your baby needs it.

Moving Forward

Once your baby is home, it's time to start enjoying the newest member of your family. Take time to just hold, play with and stroke your baby. Get to know her! And move forward from the NICU experience together.
