NEW RELEASE SALE!

A Week-by-Week Developmental Guide based on Gestational Age

This 64-page booklet is a developmental care guideline based on gestational age (Micro-preemie 23 weeks through 36 weeks gestation and beyond.) Written from the baby’s perspective.

Overview:
All too often the medical aspects of the NICU journey over shine some of the developmental aspects. Healthcare professional often gets caught up in numbers, statistics, volumes, growth charts, medications, conditions, and procedures, and can sometimes overlook some of the emotional and developmental things that are just as important.

The booklet, “I’m a Preemie” takes the focus off of the medical milestones and puts it into the celebration of the baby, their growth, and parenting in the NICU.

It helps to empower parents with information that will not only help them understand their preemie but also help them learn what they can do so their baby will thrive beyond the NICU days.

This information is based on development and best practice for optimal development (developmental care) in the NICU. It focuses on developmental milestones and memories and not medical milestones or conditions.

For example:
What the skin of a 24-week baby may look like.
What the body language of a 28 weeker may mean.
How much sleep a baby at 32 weeks needs.
What a 34 weeker can see, hear, feel.

Also included in the booklet is helpful information to help guide parents. What a parent can do to not only feel more comfortable on the journey but to be involved in the everyday aspects and care of their baby.

This booklet is not only a bedside teaching tool but a special keepsake storybook for parents to take home while documenting important milestones throughout the NICU journey.

YOUR NICU JOURNEY BEGINS…

The Peekaboo ICU Journey Beads collection was created as a way to acknowledge the journey and the emotional aspect of parenting a preemie.
It is a way to commemorate the baby’s time spent in the NICU, to recognize the emotions, remember the milestones, and reflect on the trials and triumphs that make their story their very own.

The Caterpillar bead is your NICU Admission bead and the first bead in your collection. The caterpillar spends most of its existence struggling to survive. Restrained by its very slow and steady movement, it cannot travel very far.  Its sole purpose is to nourish itself in order to grow and transform.

These changes may not be easy to see on the surface, but after a long hard journey, the caterpillar is transformed. Starting out as a tiny fragile speck of an egg, the once itty-bitty little worm will emerge from the cocoon as a strong and beautiful butterfly.
