Parents of Preemies Day

Hard to believe this guy was a preemie, huh? Well, that's partly because he was never little even though he was born early (he was well over 7 lbs when he was born at 35 weeks)!


But that doesn't mean we didn't have struggles. 11 days in the NICU. Breathing tubes. Feeding tubes. You name it.

Today is Parents of Preemies Day, so if you are a parent of a preemie or know someone who is, help spread awareness! Here's some stuff to check out:

- My blog post from last year's Parents of Preemies Day, where I tell Leo's preemie story
- My article on BLUNTmoms for World Prematurity Day
- Graham's Foundation, an organization that sends care packages to parents of preemies (along with providing support in numerous other ways)
- The Parents of Preemies Day website

Also, check out heartwarming stories and adorable photos on their Facebook page, and join the Twitter party for a giveaway, including a copy of Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer!
