As the parent of a premie, you’re probably wondering, what do all those tubes, monitors, and lights in the intensive care unit mean? What are the special medical problems I might face during these crucial first months? How can I talk to my premie? How will he or she respond? Can I breastfeed? Where can I find premie-size diapers and clothes?
