Preemie Olive

In July, our Heartbridge Healing Home welcomed a tiny preemie weighing just four pounds. Her name was Olive.

Olive was so tiny and weak that she could barely suck on her bottle. Thankfully, the Heartbridge nannies have lots of experience with premature babies. In just one month, she was quickly downing entire bottles right to the last drop.

In fact, the nannies sometimes have to slow her down so she doesn’t spit up her feeding. Just look at those chins!

Olive has doubled her weight and has now earned the nickname “Laughing Buddha”. She has become quite attached to her primary nanny, which is just what we love to see.

Olive definitely wins the prize for the biggest transformation! We can understand why Hazel can’t resist kissing those chubby cheeks.
