A huge thanks to Melissa Harris, a mom of two, one of whom is nicknamed “The Anti-Preemie”. Tomorrow is World Prematurity Day and Melissa offered to write this “NICU Mom Survival Guide” based on what she learned as a NICU “survivor”. Before we get to her tips, here is Melissa’s story as a video that her hospital produced […]
Why these challenges? Outings with a baby? Our own experience with unstructured time and a small baby tells us that having an activity planned or a project for the day is tremendously helpful in passing the time.

The days are long, but the years fly by. Make it a good one!
