Free GIFT for Preemie Parents in the NICU

Back when Nicole and first conceived and wrote our book, The Preemie Parent’s Survival Guide to the NICU we found ourselves wanting to provide something to new parents that would help them in those first few hours and days and weeks of preemie parenting. We wanted to tell them all of the things we would have liked to have known to calm ourselves down in those stressful moments. And so we created “The Top 10 Things Preemie Parents Need to Know Right Now” that was originally supposed to be part of the book. Instead we have decided to have it as our “baby shower” gift to new preemie parents.

Check it out here along with our other freebie downloads – pass it on!:

  1. Prayers for Jaxen! Aydree and her husband Javi were visiting their family for Thanksgiving. They went to the hospital just thinking she was having problems with her then incompatibility.. During the check is where they discovered she was dialated to a 6.. The doctors and nurses tried to stop her labor the seizure came when they found they couldn’t and she was so scared rate he was coming so early. she ended up having her baby on the eve of Thanksgiving at 4:20 AM she was only 24 weeks and five days pregnant with her first baby. He weighs 1 lb. 6 oz. and he’s 12 3/4 in long. Please please keep his family in your prayers during this rough time we do have a very strong family and I know that we can get a prayer chain going. Such a beautiful family and daddy is serving our country this is so unfortunate.

  3. I have a little preemie myself. He was born yesterday 01/27/2021. He’s doing good but we both have a very long road ahead of us.

  4. I have a 1 week old preemie girl born at 35 weeks. Long long road ahead. Does anyone have resources that may be available to help with preemie items ?

  5. I have a 23-weeker currently in the NICU. He’s 29 weeks today! Jack was born March 19, 2021. He’s trying to grow! He’s 1 pound 10.5 ounces.

  6. Khendra,
    Thank you for sharing Jack with all of us. Grow, Jack, GROW! I hope the team is letting you do Kangaroo Care? Tell them that International Kangaroo Care Awareness Day is on May 15th! 😉 Please keep us updated on Jack and let us know if you need help. HUGS and hang in there! Love, Deb

  7. Our son was born May 31st 2021 at 31 weeks and 4 days. Today we made it to 3 weeks and are still doing great. Have a few more weeks before we will get to come home though!

  8. Becky,

    Congratulations on your warrior son! Sounds like you are right on track as my 30 weeker girl went home a little bit after the timeframe you noted for your son. I hope everything continues to go smoothly for him and for you.


  9. My daughter has a son that is in nicu, she is not doing well mentally feels like she is a bad Mom as he won’t drink much of his bottle we can’t find any clothes that will fit him despite he was 4lbs 8.4 oz at birth. Any help suggestions may help her right now & the weeks to come

  10. Angie,

    Congrats on your grandson! Yes, the feeder and grower stage can be challenging. Please tell your daughter to jump onto the Inspire Preemie Community that I moderate and has over 64,000 parents worldwide. I moderate and we have several parents right now with babies in the NICU. Finding clothing can be a challenge but Amazon should have some items. It is okay if they are a bit too big. It is totally normal.
