It's not normal, every baby is meant to have one. Even twins are put in separate incubators which are then put close to each other. Naija Na wa o, what won't someone see

Linda are you kidding? Do they look like they were just given birth talkless of being pre-mature. This isn't wise o...as if u never go school.

No, so abnormal. No enough incubators I guess.

Which way Nigeria?

Anonymous said...

Doesn't look too good, but if there's a shortage of incubators what else can hospital staff do? This is an extraordinary measure to save the babies' lives.

Juliet Iwuno said...

Its not normal but I guess it's for a good course. Linda take note!

KWEEN said...

Only in Lagos!

It's not right at all but when the desirable becomes unavailable the available become desirable

Inadequate equipment is one of the problems faced by Nigerian hospitals

Nigeria! God please protect these innocent little ones

Di Mateo Xavie said...

Hmmm....the unavailability of medical facilities is really a shame

Ogbukwa Blessing said...

To me isn't normal at all because if one have disease the other can easily get it

Pretty face said...

this must be due to inadequate facility

Anonymous said...

It is definitely abnormal but the best in the circumstances. There are definitely not enough incubators available for the population and if they insist on one child per incubator the number of children being turned away will be higher and when there are casualties people will come online and spew all kinds of invectives again the medical personnel.

jenny ajukwu said...

Atleast they have an incubator to share. Things will get better

Adenike Bamigboye said...

So bad

Anonymous said...

This is crazy, how and disgusting for a state as Lagos

Kelly Babatunde said...

It's either the Doctors thought that there is love in sharing or there are no enough facilities in the hospital

vinna saviour said...

It isn't normal pls,those children needs space

anon said...

As long as they are kept alive and well. Things will get better.

Joyous babe,Linda ikeji first cousin said...

Na wa o,I don,t think is normal.

Its because of family business like this in NNPC that our hospitals lack basic facilities
Dumebi Kachikwu Builds N3.4 Billion Mansion in Asokoro. Buys Property in Dubai and London

Things are looking up for Dumebi Kachikwu. Less than eight months after his brother was appointed Group Managing Director of NNPC, the Abuja-based business man is wrapping up constructions of his mansion in Asokoro.

Located along Nelson Mandela Street, the mansion reportedly hosts 8 bedroom, 13 toilets, 4 living rooms, hardwood flooring a luxurious man cave in the basement, a family movie theatre and an indoor heated swimming pool. Invitations for the house warming party are currently being printed, with each invite reportedly worth 35,000 naira.

Look, all these stuff are totally unnecessary, if you don't want your premature baby sharing an incubator, simply move on. Am sure the private hospitals in Lag ve enough empty incubators, ignorant fools will always complain about health facilities. Yet none of their engineers ever developed anything, common roads cannot be made durable. Telecom industry run by Nigeria are in shambles yet they'll come on social media to complain about underfunded and underpaid hospitals and doctors. Una for turn the doctors to incubators. Now one young doctor will read ur stupid blog and turn baq a premature baby because he doesn't want the public to complain about his work.
Ignorant fools!

Jus negodu!
-D great anonymous now as Vivian Reginalds

Taiwo Koga said...

This babies are not premature. Don't deceive the public,we have eyes.

Public health facilities in the country are generally overstretched. If only our politicians can donate one incubator things will gradually get better.

chommy said...

Only in naija. Linda observe!

These babies are so big my child was premature so I know a premature baby when I see 1 habahaba and babies in incubators don't wear clothes

Anonymous said...

make sure your picture is not fake before posting. babies in incubators are not usually dressed and those babies don't look like preemies. then is it ethical for you to put someone's children's pictures on the internet without permission. Did the parents grant permission. Bloggers need to be careful

Your parents were wrong bringing you to this world. Biko go and sit down.

help me ask oh these babies look old

Kamal Salau said...

No, it is as a result of Buhari being a Boko Haram

Anonymous said...

Thank you oooo

Dapson said...

What does Buhari and Book Haram has to do with two babies sharing incubator... ode...

adeyemi, MD said...

These babies look at least 4 week old and in no way premature. No doctor anywhere in Nigeria will nurse these babies in incubator let alone putting two babies cos there àre always shortage of incubators for the premature. This would then appear as abuse of scarce facilities. My submission is that parents of these babies place them there by themselves while health workers weren't looking just to rubbish Nigeria health system. Who knows if the incubator is a faulty one placed òn the corridor. Madam, pls always verify b4 posting and hesitate a bit b4 running down our health sector. Nigeria doctors are highly professional, bad eggs are everywhere tho.

Daisy said...

dumb question. just like asking if it's normal for two people to share a small bed.

Linda, that is what they have. The person that posted it in the first place should be arrested . Would they rather have their child outside the incubator to die? Linda, you can decide to make incubator donations to the hospitals afterall God don bless you to bless your environment.

Jude Akinwole said...

It is well o!

Charles Ilechie said...

Linda this is very funny, Matured babies inside incubator. Abeg what are they incubating?

Anonymous said...

That's the realest answer, at least they are doing something. Should they have left one to die?
