Having a grandson in the NICU is very stressful. Being able to see him on the camera anytime from home or our smartphones is so nice. Our family calls it Tucker TV after our grandson’s name. I had a couple babies in the NICU 30+ years ago. What a wonderful difference this technology makes in parents and families connection with our babies.
THE ARRIVAL OF A NEW FAMILY MEMBER IS AN EXCITING AND EMOTIONAL EVENT.
But when the newborn’s first few critical days, weeks or even months are spent in the NICU, parental joy is tempered by the unease of separation and the stress of fitting in regular visits.
