NICU Journal : A Parent` Journey

The American Academy of Pediatrics

Parents of babies in the NICU will become more informed partners in care with this essential resource and beautiful keepsake. The spiral-bound journal provides educational content and a place for parents to record their babys progress. Parents are encouraged to track their babys condition week-to-week and to commemorate special moments along the way. Journaling prompts remind parents to record their infants vital statistics and jot down questions to ask the medical team. The journal also includes helpful information on common issues and questions in the NICU, as well as an overview of developmental milestones. A self-care section offers tips for parents on coping during this stressful time. A glossary of NICU terms and a checklist for bringing baby home round out the NICU Journal.
