Keeping those views in mind, nurses at the hospital have recently started graduation ceremonies, celebrating a premature newborn's transition from NICU to the real world.

The cool new tradition sees the babies snapped on their last day before going home with a personalised graduation hat.

For example, this one says "NICU Grad. 40 days behind me, a whole lifetime in front of me!!"
