JaeNece Walker was born December 30,2004. She was due April 20,2005!! By the grace of God my baby made it to this world. She didn’t have many complications but she did have jaundice and trouble breathing. She stayed on oxygen for 21 days. She came home on day 47!!! The only side effects she has is that she wears glasses her sight is terrible and she has asthma due to lungs being under developed!! She is definitely a blessing!!

She came in my life and changed every perceived understanding of what I thought love was. Someone so small has the ability to show you in a certain way how to live, laugh and love without having a ill motive. I believe that babies are a gift to show us what we are focusing on isn’t really that important. What’s your story with your #preemie?
So my daughter decided she wanted to come early! I was in the hospital 3 wks prior because I had a tear in my bag and the amniotic fluid was leaking. She came in this world at 2 lbs 4oz at 25 weeks early. She had jaundice respiratory problems. She was not released until the end of July from being born May 19th. I was told she wouldn’t walk without assistance Sahai would be severely delayed developmentally. However I’m here to say she walked on her own and talked at 8mths old which is unheard of for a preemie! She’s doing amazing, a great dancer since age 2 and has been a straight all A’s student since kindergarten and she’s now ending her 10th grade year in high school!! She was deemed the miracle baby since birth and she’s living up to her name!

Learn to swaddle. Remember, a preemie is still “supposed” to be in the womb! Because of this, They will probably like to be held snugly. Be careful not to wrap too tight, though. The nurse’s can help you master the swaddle technique. My daughter spent the first eight months of her life with a onesie, and a swaddling blanket!
