If you buy this book at the beginning of your child's stay in the NIC, you will be able to make full use of the information it contains.
What I liked most about this book was the positive tone. The author shared lots of information without making it scary, and I could tell that she had been where I was and felt the way I was feeling. The only thing I didn't like about the book was that it presented information only from the perspective of formula feeding (and I don't have a problem with formula feeding!), which left out a lot of the trials and experiences that I was going through trying to pump and figure out how to breastfeed a baby that didn't have his reflexes coordinated.
Other than that, I think this is an excellent book for NICU parents, especially if you are nearing the end of your hospital stay or have just come home.
