In brief: They are amazing
they take care of these babies like they are their own.
they are probably the best nurses--will watch for all medical and emotinal needs and watch out for your baby

NICU nurses are generally superb. They are always willing to share information and teaching about your child with parents. take advantage of their knowledge and learn as much as you can. Hope all will be well.

In brief: Loving Care
These nurses bond with the babies they tend.
They care for these infants for hours at a time, sometimes for weeks on end. Their love and tenderness shows in their actions. They may not always be able to answer your questions, or let you hold your tiny infant, but they will always care.

Neonatal nurses will also teach you about caring for your little one as the discharge date approaches.
They are an invaluable resource.
