Do a “Mission Moment” Watch “Fight for Preemies!” • Ring • Imagine a baby so small that this ring would slide over the hand and arm or the foot and leg of a 15-week premature baby. This is a dramatic example of how tiny a preemie really is. • Premature Baby Diaper • This diaper is one that a premature baby would wear. It is too small for even a beanie baby. Try to imagine the size of a full term baby diaper compared to this preemie diaper. The size difference will surprise you.
