Santa Visits Preemie Babies

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO, Calif. -

Two and a half-week-old twins, Tanner and Katelynn, came into the world early, so of course they expected an early visit from Santa at UCSD's  pre-natal unit.

 Nat: 'What do you want for Christmas."' 

Two pounder Helen and three pounder Augustine took their first pictures with Santa.

 Hebert say: "The parents have always appreciated the opportunity to have something going on throughout the holiday."

 Nat: "you sleeping?"

For Kim and Brian Itschner of Temecula, Santa's visit makes spending the holidays at the hospital - - a little easier.

Itschner says: "It's nice to have the holiday atmosphere. I hope those are happy tears. Yes they are."

The visit is a tradition here at the preemie unit.

Santa says: 'This is my eighteenth year. "

Reporter says: "You`re getting old Santa."

Bringing joy to families over the year; helping mark the progress made in helping these really little ones, make it home.

Hebert says: "I think back to when I started doing this kind of nursing, half of 3 pound babies die and now we send home babies that are less than a pound."

Itschner says: "They were both born November 22."
