Every little helps

"Billy was born weighing 2lb 2oz on April 19 and immediately put in an incubator - where he was kept warm inside a plastic bag. Mr Jones, 38, said: 'He was so tiny. He was in a little resealable sandwich bag to keep his temperature up. They told me that, for all the millions spent on the NICU, what's made the biggest difference to survival rates are Tesco resealable sandwich bags. 'You look along the incubators and they're all in them, these bags saying Tesco. It's incredible.'" ('Miracle baby' who grew outside the womb - Telegraph)
