Bonding in the NICU

My son was in NICU for 2 weeks because of a PDA due to pulmonary hypertension. The first few days, I wasn't allowed to hold him or touch him! I was afraid he might have trouble bonding but that didn't happen.. I did a lot of talking and reading to him, especially Max Lucado's "You Are Special".
What about you? Have you had a child in the NICU? How did you bond?

    I've never had a child in NICU but I have known people who have. I know once the parents were allowed to hold their baby they opted for Kangaroo care (I think that's what it is called).
