FINALLY !

The response to my NICU Holiday Hamper Project for new Mamas who will find themselves in the NICU over the upcoming Holidays has been
O-V-E-R-W-H-E-L-M-I-N-G !

But only from my fellow Mama and Mamapreneur network •
Not. From. Big. Corporates.

Until today.

Today I received confirmation from @timhortons head office, confirming they will be sending me 25 x $20 gift cards, to be included in each Holiday Hamper

YAY @timhortons !

Thank you for caring and for your generosity

Now to @starbuckscanada @toysruscanada @snugglebugzbaby @walmartcanada @sobeys @indigobabyofficial @nestledbaby @drbrowns @squishcandy - how are you reaching out to help with this project? So far you’ve all been VERY quiet 🤫 and non-responsive to my requests for help. •

I’m really excited about these cute swaddlers and this pocket tee newborn carrier (that works with one or two babies)! Thank you so much @nuroobaby !

Life after NICU for many Families consists of multiple Dr and Therapy appointments. Physical therapy, Occupational therapy and Speech therapy are some of the most common. Premature Babies are at a higher risk for developmental delays. 🎇
PT focuses on motorskills and muscle tone. ST can help with feedings by working on the muscles responsible for sucking, chewing and swallowing. OT helps Baby with the Basic activities of every day life (eating, playing and interacting). OT is so important for Preemies and it can be so much fun too. It is important for Parents to partner with their Therapist to ensure their Baby hits developmental milestones and is on track for their adjusted age. Playing and learning at home can be so much fun using things you already have!

Je suis retombée sur leurs premières couches, grandeur prématuré 2, que j’ai gardé dans leurs souvenirs 😳. En 2 mois de vie, ils ont porté 3 grandeurs de couches déjà (Prématuré 2, prématuré 1 et maintenant NB ). Les infirmières me disaient qu’il y en a une prématurée 3, plus petite encore que la 2 ! Je n’ose pas imaginer à quel point ça doit être petit. En comparant la prématurée 2 (à gauche) avec celle NB (au centre), on peut imaginer à quel point ils étaient petits. Surtout qu’à l’habitude, on trouve dont bien que c’est petit du NB ! À droite c’est la grande couche 5 de mon grand bébé. Je suis bien contente qu’ils soient rendus dans les grandeurs normales! 🙌🏼

Well, turns out Lawrence is not a fan of the ocean. He doesn’t like the wet sand on his feet. He doesn’t like waiting for the waves to come over his toes or even watching the waves a short distance away. And he really doesn’t like cold water. He prefers to snuggle with @sarapresler and I can’t blame him 😂🌊😬 (he does however like to pull my hair, swipe 👉 to see 🤦🏼‍♀️). #thosecheeksthough

✨H E A R T. K I D S✨ we are so lucky to have ongoing support from @heartkidsnz .
.
From the first time Rob responded to my email late one night, to meeting Diane (family support) the next day, to taking milk up to NICU for me when I was unwell and couldn’t get there, to explaining what to expect in PICU during Grace’s open heart bypass, to feeding us during PICU and NICU, to spending extra time with Amelia when we were with Grace when she needed us most, to popping in around home to check in on us, to purchasing a BOC oxygen bag to make getting out and about more manageable. .
.
The love, support and understanding we have received from Heart Kids is beyond what I could’ve imagined from a charity organisation. .
.
Thank you for all you have done, and continue to do, for Heart Families ♥️

“This is a small part of the everyday life of a mother in the NICU. What happens in a mother can only be known, felt and understood by those who are living through it. Your baby lies in an incubator surrounded by cables and tubes that cover the tiny face. You want to cuddle your baby; nurses help you put your baby on the chest. In the background, the beeping of the monitor, whether your baby is breathing, whether the heart is beating.
Sounds terrible if you have not been confronted with such a situation before. Terrible on one hand, but do you see my smile? Why? Because you are simply infinitely grateful that you have not lost your baby, that medicine has progressed to do wonders. The psyche? Yes, it suffers. But you see your baby fighting and are ashamed of every tear you lose. I wish each mama happy tears. You have to believe in yourself, have a lot of strength and be strong.💪🏼👼🏼 ♥ ️🤲🏼🧚🏽”

It's World Prematurity Day this Saturday
Here is my little man at two weeks old at being born at 26weeks. I've done alot of talking and raising awareness for prem babies. I will always be ever so grateful to have gotten through this very hard time in my life.
Every prem baby can be born in many different reasons as to why. It's very common and research is improving every year. My advice to a anyone that's going through this, be kind to yourself and take it day by day, and when you finally get home after 3 months being in the prem unit just enjoy every minute. Try to be as normal as you can and take as much advice as you need. There is plenty of support and don't be afraid to ask

First time using our triplet stroller and first time out with all three boys. Was to a doctors appointment since that’s the only place we can go during RSV season (well, that and Wendy’s drive thru 🍔). Funny enough, they really do like car rides and have been pretty well behaved at visits.

“This is Savannah. We knew something wasn't right from our first scan and we were referred to the fetal medicine team, as the weeks went a bigger problems arose and Savannah had fluid on her chest, along with my blood results coming back alarming there wasn't much hope for her. We had further testing to soon be diagnosed with down syndrome. We saw specialits to discuss the fluid which was causing her left lung to collapse. Luckily it disappeared by itself. As the weeks passed more problems came so we always knew Savannah would be early. But we were all hoping and praying that she would hang in there a little while longer to develop more. But as my placenta wasn't giving her the blood flow she needed at 27+6 she was born by emergency c section weighing 852grams. The first few weeks was very touch and go for us but she turned a corner and progressed well. We spent 17+5 weeks in NICU. And although she is on home oxygen and home feeding tube she is now 6 months old and we are so in love ❤”

Thank you @wildaboutsavannah for sharing •

Pom-Pom beanies can help families of preemie babies feel like their child is experiencing winter- even if it’s spent in the NICU🧢👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👶🏻 #SHUSocialMedia #winter #beanies #babies #nicu #preemies

Let's be honest. One bad thing about a baby getting sick, even a simple cold, is that your little one wakes up multiple times during the night. That makes a tired momma/daddy. I'm all for sleep. That's just one reason I designed these car seat signs! • • •

Hello everyone. I’ve officially began raising funds in memory of our son Gabriel. Please read my story and consider making a donation... Back in 2009, our first son Gabriel, was born 17 weeks early at 1 lb 1 oz. We were blessed to have 10 days with him. After our loss, I learned about the @marchofdimesflorida @marchofdimes @marchforbabies and for the last 9 years I’ve raised funds, walked in memory of our son, have spoken at numerous events and am I big advocate for prematurity awareness. Please help me to reach my goal in memory of our son. Visit www.marchforbabies.org/Coach02 to donate. #teammemoryofgabriel #marchforbabies #marchofdimes #support #raisingfunds #funds #donate #donation #prematurity #preemies

Our little men are #18monthsold☀️ Hennie - 74cm & 17.5lbs: 🐻#Littlebabybear is extra small compared to his peers and to be frank he’ll never ‘catch up’, but that’s very ok, as he’s following his own curve, and what’s important is he’s not falling behind. & He’s walking around like it didn’t take all the hard work behind the scenes 🥳 A thousand baby-squats later, a million stretchy-baby sessions later, and weeks of stumbling back and forth from Mama to Dada, he let go of his walker and toddled down the hall after his brother. Now, a month later, he’s non stop running and dancing. Henry is a huge fan of moving his body to music and chirping along to familiar tunes🤩 He’s a little parrot, copying a lot and shouting any combination of syllables to be a part of our conversations! He even uses hand signals to let us know if he wants food, water, or milk👍🏻 Boogie - 82cm & 24.5lbs: 🐻#Bigbabybear is loving having his brother upright to chase, since the cats officially have given up on him being gentle. Once he catches whoever’s targeted and he loves to wrestle and snuggle! 😂We hear Thank You Boo!! all day, as he learned it from Jose. He uses it along with the same hand signals as Hen. Hen is even teaching him to dance to the Wiggles!! He’s so loving and happy - mostly. He’s getting just FANTASTIC at toddler tantrums, the drama he can muster is enviable🙄 It’s absolutely adorable. Also, he’s teaching Henry how to freak out so that’s absolutely awesome👌🏻😭. Hahaha the joys of having twins!! 👯‍♂️ It’s hard to update as every single day they learn something new! So if you have any questions, please, ask!! #twinsies #milestones #preemies #micropreemie #32weekers #happyboys #happyfamily #littlemen #prematurityawareness #siblings #curlyhair

Go baby go
Fight like a preemie!
Semana del prematuro, y acá estoy yo con mis dos guerreros Cruz a mi derecha y Máximo a mi izquierda, que llegaron al mundo apuraditos y lo dieron vuelta por completo!
Todas mis energías a las mamás y papás que están pasando por esto ahora, que tienen las manos secas de tanto jabón hospitalario y que aun cuando apoyan la cabeza en sus almohadas les parece seguir escuchando las alarmas de la neo. A los que se les detuvo el mundo en ese instante y se traslado a la unidad de cuidados intensivos neonatologicos, a donde dejan cada noche a sus tesoros mas preciados y un pedazo de su corazón ( si no todo). Sepan que por mas chiquitos que los veamos estan en el mejor lugar que podrian estar y los estan cuidando para que salgan adelante. Y que aunque a veces den pasitos para atras son simplemente para tomar envion! FUERZA!

Hannah has finally received her lift a few days ago and we couldn't be more thankful! She actually seems to like it! Now maybe transitions will go a little smoother. 😊
