Are you a good cuddler? If so, some babies at area hospitals could use your tender loving care!
 
Memorial Hospital and Mercy Southwest are both calling on volunteers to help cuddle and read to children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
 
Organizers say the program has been a big success so far -- especially when staff members get busy and mothers need a break.
