Every day, new progress is being made in the care of babies born prematurely, helping them grow up stronger and healthier than ever imagined. But raising "preemies" often places special demands on parents whose little ones seem -- especially in those early weeks and months -- as fragile as they are precious.

This illustrated guide, written by medical professionals who themselves are mothers of premature babies, can help. With guidance on such wide ranging topics as bringing the baby, home to medical issues, to doctor visits, to starting school -- plus tips on dealing with the emotional and family stress of parenting a preemie -- this book provides the answers needed to optimize that special baby's development.
