    I’m sorry it’s been rough, the NICU is trauma for anyone who had to deal with it. We used to marvel at the “huge” babies when we’d pass by them but your experience isn’t any less valid because of your baby’s size. In fact, November is Prematurity Awareness Month, but September is NICU awareness month because not all nicu babies are preemies!

    My guy was a 24 weeker who weighed a pound and a half at birth and spent 121 days and had three surgeries! Our experiences might be different, but the trauma of your baby in the nicu is the same, and you are definitely welcome here!
