Using some ziplock disposable containers I was able to cut out holes and make some isolettes.

It's been a while since I posted what we've been up to. Never fear we haven't given up on the NICU families. The Stranded family bags continue to be an amazing moment of peace for the families that are transported in a hurry. As some of you know I have started working closely with the March of Dimes NICU family support attending and helping with different events that they do. One of the things that always concerns the staff and families is how the siblings of the babies don't really understand what is happening with their baby. So pooling a bunch of Danya's Barbie toys, I was able to create a Barbie NICU where the siblings can interact with the "babies" and to open discussion between parents and the kids.
