We all know how dangerous a preterm birth is for babies. The weight of most of them is around 500g (that’s half a bag of sugar or 5 standard chocolate bars!!!), and it means their systems are not fully developed. Feeling the closeness of parents has a significant effect on their baby’s recovery and growth.
However, parents are not able to hold their children close to their body all the time.
When a baby arrives unexpectedly the parent’s world stops to focus on the little one. There are so many things to sort out that are important and part of everyday life. It is full on, and parents need a break too.
