The words from one of America's most beloved Pediatricians and author, Dr. Benjamin Spock helped to empower generations of parents. His book Baby and Child Care was published in 1946 and became one of the biggest best-sellers of all time. His message, which was revolutionary for the time, provides encouragement for NICU parents even today.
"Trust yourself" is a very helpful reminder for parents and a gentle aid for parents during troubling time. His simple message "Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do" can even be used as helpful mantra for worried NICU parents.
