Premature babies or preemies are those born earlier than 37 weeks. They are usually thought of as weaker and highly vulnerable babies because they came out into this world before being fully developed.
But these babies can be great fighters, too. They are strong enough to brave the outside world even without being fully ready for it. And when they flash that cute, little smile, it’s guaranteed to melt your hearts. Here are preemies proving to the world that they can battle the odds.
