Parenting Your Premature Baby and Child

Believe in Katie Lynn
by Dr. Bartholomew Resta
"Wow, someone has written our NICU story! Written by a pediatrician, this is a remarkable story of a preemie baby and the saving grace of a mother's touch. Day after day, the mother waits by the bedside as her preemie weakens. The doctors add more, complex machines for "Baby 2" and worry about all the long term effects of prematurity. Finally, when her mother is allowed to hold the almost lifeless baby , her gentle touch helps her grow. Despite handicaps due to her premature birth, the baby grows up to be a caring and productive adult, caring for preemies herself. Probably too frightening for young children, this is a great resource for professionals, older children and adults coping with prematurity. This hardcover book brings tears to my eyes, I can't wait to share it with my preemie son."

Tiniest Warrior Preemie Book

The Tiniest Warrior of All: A Fairytale for Families with a Premature Baby
by Nicola JD Maher
"A cute premise with a rather unusual presentation, this children's picture book presents the journeys of a preemie baby from conception to home in a mythical format. Parents with religious beliefs or who wish to present a factual story are likely to find it confusing. Parents looking for a indirect, gentle way of viewing the time in the NICU may findit fits the bill. It is nicely illustrated."
