NICU to home!


What a huge transition, your baby/babies are home. No more driving up to the hospital. It’s wonderful yet scary at the same time. The safety net of the nurses are gone. It’s you now 24/7, exhausting and so satisfying to be independent with your baby.

Don‘t forgot what you were taught:

prioritize- what has to be done versus what needs to be done

organize- so you don’t waste time and you can be more efficient and things will run smoother

rest when you can- don’t clean the house if you need to rest

accept help- someone can do your laundry, tidy up your house, make meals
