As parents, there’s nothing closer to our hearts than our little people. Because some people are born a littler earlier than others, Made 4 Baby will be joining team Medela to support premie babies and their families.
In 2012, our little boy was one of the 50,000 babies born premature or sick every year. Luckily for us, our boy didn’t require specialist care or a stay in hospital, but plenty of families find themselves in the frightening position of having a new baby with specialist health needs.
Organisations like Life’s Little Treasures provide support to the families of premie and sick babies. Everything from information packs to phone and personal counselling to providing books to neonatal units so that parents can enjoy family time with their new babies.
When we were invited to join the Medela team for Life’s Little Treasures Walk for Prems, we didn’t have to think twice. The Made 4 Baby families will be joining the team for the Sydney walk on Sunday.
