Premature babies at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital turn into the world's cutest superheroes

In view of World Prematurity Day (Nov17) this year, KK Women's and Children's Hospital came up with a superhero themed dress up for the premature babies to celebrate their resilience.

These tiny babies were dressed up as superhero characters such as Captain America and The Flash.

They were born before their gestation period was up, hence they are still rather weak and have weak immunity systems at birth.

As such, they will have to stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or Special Care Nursery for weeks to months until their condition stabilises before going home, according to KKH's facebook post.
