Having a premature baby is most often earth shatteringly unexpected and along with emotional turmoil it can create huge financial strain for families - unforeseen travel costs, missed work, accommodation, eating on the go between home and NICU, care for siblings... it all adds up. I learnt quickly that there are no hand me downs in size prem. A little luxury like dressing your babe can be out of reach if things get tight.
To help create the moments of normal every parent deserves, we have created 'Dress a NICU Babe' - an initiative running alongside Prematurity Awareness month, helping NICU families in two ways.
For the month of November you can purchase an outfit that will go directly to a premature baby currently on their NICU journey via The Neonatal Trust.
Your gift will help twice, we will donate the proceeds from your purchase to The Neonatal Trust, the driving force of support for families of premature or sick full term babies as they make their journey through neonatal care, the transition home, and onwards.
Mums and dads get a moment of normal as they dress their babe for the first time, and your donation helps the Trust provide support to the families. You get a boost up the karma ladder!
To Dress a NICU Babe choose either an all-in-one or bodysuit and we’ll take care of the rest.
On behalf of the NICU world, THANK YOU xx
