Default Re: Preemie Headbands

My baby was born at 30 weeks and Jenni is correct. They always have to wear a hat in the nicu. The reason is they are so tiny and week. They can not control their body temperature. They are put in incubators to keep them warm so that they do not have to fight to keep warm. As far as the size of her head, I recommend asking one of the nicu nurses for measurements and go from there. My son was 3lbs 8oz and his head was actually smaller than his 2lb 11oz room buddy. My prayers are with your friend and her family.
