In a room where everything is too big; the hospital bed, gowns, beds, blankets, and baby bottles. Bite-sized hats made specifically for premature babies offer hope and warmth to the families who love and care for them.
- Every year, an estimated 15 million babies are born preterm (before 37 completed weeks of gestation), and this number is rising.

- Three-quarters of them could be saved with current, cost-effective interventions.
