Premature babies, babies who had difficult deliveries, and babies with medical conditions or birth defects require special newborn care and intensive medical attention. They are often admitted into a hospital’sNeonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)where a team of highly trained health care professionals work together to provide a course of specialized care. Doctors will order a variety of tests, X-rays, and ultrasounds and possibly put your baby on special high-calorie diet, administer antibiotics and medicines into your baby’s care program. Nurses may set up feeding schedules and handle their around the clock care. While listening to dozens of medical professionals can be overwhelming, every member of a NICU staff works tirelessly to make your baby’s stay as comfortable as possible for your baby and your family.
