Cool Site Alert: www.babyfirst.com

Deb and I are on the look-out for all sorts of cool preemie parent sites and are eager to share them with you! Man, it would have been nice for us to have these sites handy when our kids were in the NICU and going through all of that preemie chaos!

This site was developed by Drager and NICU University, and appears to have information for both preemie parents and preemie professionals:

We would love to hear what you think about this site!

  1. Hello Nicole and Nick,
    My 16 year old son and I just watched \little man\ on showtime. I so cried when you were able to hold him to your heart! I do not cry easily! I am a mother of 16 year old boy/girl twins. They were not preemies. But I had a late miscarriage months before I conceived my twins. It was a heartbreak for sure. But I really admired your dedication to your son! You really did bring him through. I also felt for the decision to commit him to a life where he feels pain and discomfort. But then, don’t we all in many ways. My son, Ryan was in ICU for 3 weeks with viral encephalitis in 2008. He recovered buy could not speak for those weeks. It was so scary. More so for sure than my own cancer. Why did you make this movie? for all of we Moms who love our children. What a love story! I am sorry for your divorce. I had to say I saw it coming with Gwens; comments. But what an angel your daughter and Nick’s sister is. I know you count your blessings as I do, count the babies twice. God bless you all and good luck!
    Love and prayers.

  2. I would first like to just thank you for sharing your early years with Nicholas to the world. It has been a blessing to me. I to have a son who was born at 1pound and I have never known or connected with anyone who could remotely relate to what I went through for the first 3 months of my sons life…and continue to go through. I would love to get in contact with someone in the Sacramento area to bring more support to other parents with children who have special needs. I didn’t get the support that every parent deserves in that situation. But because of your documentary, I finally feel validated in all the. Emotions I had going through that life changing experience. If you know anyone or who to get in contact with in this area I’d greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much for sharing your story! You’ll never know how much it means to me. I hope all is well.
