The site I run is working on putting together NICU care packages or survival kits that an out of town friend or relative could send to a NICU parent. We've brainstormed a bunch, but I was wondering if you guys had any better ideas. We won't necessarily know where these are going, so gift cards are out. Current ideas include a disposable camera, chapstick, pen and notebook, small stuffed animal for baby, etc.
Any other ideas would be appreciated. Think along the lines of small comfort items you had or wanted while sitting in the NICU.
