Jill Dillard took Duggar fans on a trip back in time with a throwback snapshot of her son Freddy at the NICU. Feeling a bit emotional, Jill admits she can’t believe how big her baby already is. She proceeded to explain the photo she shared was from roughly two months ago. In the photo, she could be seen “squeezing in all the snuggles I could with my little Freddy.”
Bringing Freddy into the world was hard for Jill Dillard
As Jill Dillard reminds her 1.7M followers, baby Freddy had a rough start to the world. Born a little earlier than expected, her little one had to spend some time in the NICU before he was ready to come home. After taking her followers back in time with this throwback photo, she shifted gears a bit. She wanted to get relatable to the NICU mamas that followed her.
“Any of you other #nicumama’s out there know that feeling when you just wanna sit and hold them till your bladder nearly bursts?!” She questioned before attaching an emoji of her raising her hand as if to say “me too.”
Being a NICU mom, Jill Dillard admits she’s eternally thankful for the days she now gets to spend at home bonding with her son. Jill concluded her post by thanking Ronald Mcdonald House Charities for helping support families when their children end up in the hospitals.
She added: “If y’all don’t know about them and have a child in the hospital/going in for an overnight stay/procedure, you need to check them out!!”
