Dear Family: What Your Preemie Wants You to Know

Myth: I love to watch TV. I even know when it is a commercial because I look away from the screen.
Reality: I may be looking at the TV because I am over-stimulated by all the flashing lights and colors. It is almost as though the lights hypnotize me. The reason I look away is because the pattern changes and it breaks the "trance" I am in. It is probably better that I don't watch TV anyway. I am too little to know what is going on. Plus, I'd rather just spend time playing with you!

Thank you for having this. As a new mom and a new mom to a preemie who will be 3 months at the end of this month I have been wondering what types of activities to do with my son and other things mentioned here.
