Bonding Squares are intended to help NICU families to bond with their babies through smell – one of the most developed senses in premature infants. One bonding square can be worn against the parent’s skin, and one can be left with the baby in the isolette. Each day, the squares can be switched so the baby has the parent’s scent and the parent can have the baby’s scent. It can be incredibly meaningful to take “a piece” of your baby home with you each day.

Family, friends, nurses, and doctors reminded us to take the NICU journey "one day at a time". We rejoiced in the "good" days.
