If you've never been inside a NICU, it can be hard to imagine how tiny preemies really are. Because there's so much equipment and because they're so small, it's sometimes scary to see a baby in the NICU. For parents, it can be just as hard to try to picture your newborn preemie as a toddler or a young child. So many loving families have sent in stories and pictures of their babies that I felt like it was time to organize them into a photo gallery to help my readers see what preemies really look like, at birth and as they grow. Happy viewing!
