Meet 12 adorable preemies and see how they look now
Preemies certainly have it rough from the get-go: We take a look at some of the strongest fighters and see how far they've come.

On World Prematurity Day (November 17th) we celebrated our smallest humans. Preemies are known fighters from the day they get placed in NICU to the time when they get home, We asked our Parent24 community to share some before and after pictures of their little ones.
