Saving premature babies one stitch at a time

What would you do if your baby weighed less than 4 pounds?
How would you clothe a baby too small for newborn sized clothing?
What if doll clothing was the only type of clothes that would fit your baby?

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.

Key facts

  • Every year, an estimated 15 million babies are born preterm (before 37 completed weeks of gestation), and this number is rising.
  • Preterm birth complications are the leading cause of death among children under 5 years of age, responsible for nearly 1 million deaths in 2013.
  • Three-quarters of them could be saved with current, cost-effective interventions.
  • Across 184 countries, the rate of preterm birth ranges from 5% to 18% of babies born.

When saying thank you is not enough!

We love our volunteers and supporters, but sometimes saying, “Thank You” simply doesn’t convey what we really mean. So to show our appreciation, we created this video.

Saving premature babies one knot at a time

This past weekend, our hands have been busy knitting to express what our hearts feel.

Because it is important for Preemie Parents with babies in the NICU to stay strong and give their little ones a stress free environment with lots of love and care, we are sending an extra large box of hats to the Connecticut region.

Although our NICU babies might not be directly impacted with the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary, there is an overwhelming heaviness of sadness everywhere and we are going to do everything we can to protect premature babies and hope that their young bodies continue to grow stronger.

If you have extra time, please consider sending a few hats our way.
