Diply 19 Oct 2016

Premature babies are babies born before 37 weeks. Some may think they're weaker and have little chance of surviving, but in reality, preemie babies are fighters. They are born already in the middle of a battle and they try their hardest to make it through. There is nothing sweeter than a baby's smile — except for maybe when a preemie smiles. Because when they smile, it shows that everything is going to be okay.

Here are 13 premature babies who are smiling simply because they're happy to be alive.
