I would say that giving the gift of your time to help with older
siblings or meal preparation or even straightening up the house before
baby comes home would be the most awesome gift for a NICU family.
Another idea would be a motion sensing sleep pad, an assortment of tiny
clothes (those can be hard to find when you need them), or a crib
mobile (or toys) that is the black/white/red colors to help train
babies eyes to focus would be very fitting. (Alot of premies need to
develope this more then full term babies)
Another idea is to offer to help with thank you cards, there are alot
of places that donate to NICU babies and it adds to those pesky cards
to fill out and keep track of. Maybe printing up thank you cards with
babies name and birthdate on them might help the parents out… If they
are close friends, you should be able to find their real need if you
ask them what they are feeling overwhelmed by (besides worrying about
I hope all goes well for the little guy and his family.
