It’s just a washcloth. But I can’t part with it. A helpful NICU nurse suggested I buy infant washcloths, sleep with them in my bra and bring them up to the NICU. She would tuck them in my daughter’s incubator so she could smell me and get to know me. . Did it work? I don’t know. But it made me feel so much more connected to my daughter on those nights that we were apart. I did it again when I had another premature baby five years later. . Tonight I am cleaning out my now three-year-old’s closet and drawers but this is not something I can let go of. It is a symbol of hope and love and I will keep it forever. . Do you have an item tied to your preemie mom experience that you can’t bear to part with?
Anyone else had to do quick adjusted age math?! 🙇♀️ Happy #feltlikesharing Friday! . Photo credit: my #32weeker ! . . #preemiemom #preemiebaby #preemie #preemiemomproblems #preemiemomcamp #preemiemommeritbadge
I heard it’s #nationalbookloversday! What’s on your nightstand? 📚 Like most of the internet 🤣 I’ve been reading @msrachelhollis new book for motivation and inspiration. It’s all about lies we tell ourselves and the truth that can liberate us from those lies. . Have you read it? What stuck out to you most? . . #preemiemom #preemiemomcamp #girlwashyourface
