Free Printable :: Advice for Parents in the NICU

We took these words of advice and included them as a handout for the NICU care packages we delivered to our local NICU on Parents of Preemies Day, March 10, 2013.

Today, we’re offering these words of advice as FREE PRINTABLES for you to print for yourselves, for your NICUs, to include in care packages, etc.

There are 3 versions available in PDF format:

  • Version A – (pictured below) is printer-friendly in black and white
  • Version B – is a full color, full sheet version of the same layout
  • Version C – is a half-sheet version in full color, to be printed front and back (this is the version we’ve included in our NICU care packages as pictured above).

To download the 8.5″x11″ PDF(s) for printing, simply click on the image above, and a new window will open to the download locations in minus. Save the image(s) to your computer, and they’re yours! Just print it out yourself, or upload to your photo printer of choice.

Please note, free printables offered on Life after NICU are for personal use only.
