Babies in SCBU should friends visit your premature baby
the answer is No ,partly due to infection control and keeping germs from babies plus hospitals are strict for visiting sick babies and premature infants immediately family only.no family member will even be allowed onto the SCBU ward if mum or dad isn’t there (if the premature baby has both parents living together.) mum may have nipped out for a break so you as a family would have to wait until she came back to visit baby.
your friends can visit at home when your premature baby is discharged but remember they can pick up infections easily. Don’t be tempted to let anyone visit if they themselves are sick with a cold or have a stomach upset. the last thing you need is your premature baby to end up back in SCBU.
