Question by Jazzmin: Can a neonatal nurse please tell me if in that job you get to hold the babies and feed them much?
I am a junior in high school and have recently become interested in neonatal nursing as a career path after I graduate. I just love babies! And I was just wondering if anyone who is a neonatal nurse could tell me whether or not you get to be close to and hold the babies much that you work with? What all is involved in the job overall? How often do you have to work weekends, holidays, etc?

Don’t know that much about the job but I’m sure you get to hold the babies SOME but probably not that much… I know that when I was in the hospital having my son I never sent him to the nursery…. he stayed with me the entire time. And if the babies are in the NICU then no, you won’t be holding them. Nobody will. They will be in an incubator.
