One of my favorite blogs out there is Secrets of Baby Behavior. This is a research/experienced-based blog written by the very talented, well-educated, all-female staff at the UC Davis Human Lactation Center. Their latest post, Supporting Parents of Preemies: Tips for Friends and Family, really struck a chord with me and I had the immediate urge to share with you all. While I have never had a preemie, nor a baby in the NICU, I have had several friends who have. This list just illuminated all of the ways I wished I could have supported them better, and the ways in which I WILL support them if the situation arises in the future. It is unbearable to watch a friend go through the heartbreak of having a child who is not well, but at least this list shares a few tools to help in a positive way.
