A premature baby at home

A premature baby at home

How to prepare the house for the arrival of a premature baby? How to breastfeed her? How to take care of such a fragile little being? These questions, all parents of a premature baby, ask themselves at one time or another. Expert advice, testimonials from mothers, shopping: our file to facilitate the reception of a small premature in your family.

Premature childbirth is the fear of all future mothers ... If it can often be avoided, sometimes the baby is announced too early and is born as early as the 30th week of pregnancy, sometimes a little before, sometimes after. The whole family should then prepare to welcome home a premature baby. A moment all the more difficult since it follows a hospitalization and a de facto separation from this little piece so fragile.

Parents are then faced with several major challenges, which must be learned to meet together:

1. Create a bond with the baby: How to establish a parent-child relationship when we are separated from birth, when the baby is placed in an incubator and under constant medical supervision? If the key is obviously patience and presence, the medical staff (midwife or pediatrician) are there to help you maintain contact, by breastfeeding or skin to skin in particular.

2. Prepare for the return home: Baby's room, childcare equipment, keychain ... Welcoming a baby at home is always a matter of skilful organization for parents. But what about premature parents? Because it's all baby's wardrobe that you have to review and the right material (from diapers to pacifiers to the bathtub) that you have to adapt to this (too) little piece. Fortunately, there are special offers today for the very little ones to ensure a peaceful return home.

3. Baby's future: will he be healthy? Will its growth be normal? The parents of these fragile babies naturally harbor concerns. And if some encounter some difficulties, most of them have the chance to see a little bit grow in great shape. There are still questions that you should always dare to ask!
