The Darias are on a mission to bring hope and comfort to families in the NICU by providing at least 70 NICU care packages to all of the NICU families in the Cincinnati Good Samaritan Hospital NICU- and Every Tiny Thing is so excited to help!
Baby’s first year is priceless! It flies by in the blink of an eye and no parent wants to forget any of those precious firsts. In my years as a NICU nurse, I’ve been awed by all the creative ways parents document their baby’s first days, and their ingenuity inspired me to create Every Tiny Thing’sMy First Year calendar.
Every parent is proud to celebrate their child’s progress and accomplishments, but those milestones often look very different for NICU families. Instead of first smiles, first time sitting up and first steps, NICU families celebrate huge accomplishments like the first time their baby comes off the ventilator and breathes on their own.
I knew from my many years as a NICU nurse that the NICU journey is a truly unique time for families. Whether your baby is a preemie, micropreemie, or full-term baby, there are so many emotions- joy, hope, worry, excitement, frustration, and sometimes fear.
