Toaster-Headed Baby



We brought home a little toaster-headed baby four years ago today. I never would have guessed that he'd turn out so beautiful. I'd also never have guessed that after a hundred-and-twenty-five day NICU stay, three surgeries, one year of oxygen, three years of feeding issues, two winters of RSV isolation, and four years of therapy, there would come a time when those things rarely cross my mind at all.

  3. Beautiful! I love it that you're not afraid to call it a toaster head :) so many NICU parents get upset about that term, but I think, as a NICU nurse, knowing all that these amazing babies go through, a little bit of a flatter head is NOTHING! And to see your before and after photos just goes to show you how they thrive and continue to grow so much more after they get home.
    I'm glad to hear those days and those issues rarely cross your mind anymore. That's how it should be!
