Leg Warmers Aren't Just a

Leg Warmers Aren't Just a "Throw Back" from the '80's!

I was recently having a conversation with my daughter about all the leg warmers we carry here at the Preemie Store. She told me about talking with a customer on chat that was looking for pants that would work for her little preemie in the NICU. Melissa proceeded to tell her about the leg warmers we carry and the benefits of them in the NICU. This prompted her to suggest we write a blog post and share this with everyone, because sometimes when we see the name leg warmers we may just think of the '80s when they were first popular. Some of you may only remember that in terms of dressing up in '80s costumes! I kind of wish I was that young!

One, Two, Three – Things That Make Preemie clothes NICU-Friendly

One, Two, Three – Things That Make Preemie clothes NICU-Friendly

We know that even though you are here reading this blog post, you may have a nursery full of all kinds of very cute little baby clothes! It may be a few years ago (36) but I still very clearly remember back to when I found out I was pregnant with my first baby and the desire to buy those cute little things was hard to resist. The drawers of the little dresser quickly filled up with undershirts, gowns, sleepers, dresses, receiving blankets and so much more. Then all of a sudden you have your baby earlier than expected, you are faced with having clothing that does not fit, or the preemie items you may find don't really fit the needs of the NICU. They are not just too big, but the ease of dressing and working around the medical needs your preemie may have provided new hurdles in regards to the type of preemie clothes you may look for. These are some of the reasons we started designing preemie clothing many years ago. When I was first introduced to the world of the NICU, I became aware of the need for NICU-Friendly clothing. Items that parents can use in the NICU and not have to have an arm hanging out the sleeved or sleeves rolled up five times because they are way too long.

Good Things Can Come from Doubling Your Trouble!

Good Things Can Come from Doubling Your Trouble!

We have been loving hearing and sharing parent's stories about their NICU journeys! Today we have another story for you to read that we are especially excited to share with you since we have had the privilege of carrying her books for a while. The way this preemie mom found a way to help other parents going through this journey inspires me. She couldn't find any book to help siblings to understand what the NICU journey looks like, so she decided to start Me Two Books, an organization that uses books as educational tools to help children recognize and embrace differences in themselves and others.

We talked about some fun things you can do to support the parents with great ideas like coffee cards, snacks, dinners, and babysitting.

What Can I do to Help?

What Can I do to Help?

Totally out of the Blue someone you know has been thrown into the world of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). You probably didn't even know a place even existed before this baby arrived sooner than expected. Many mothers have been blessed with pregnancy's that provided them with no complications or surprises except for the big question at the end "When will this baby get out of here!" Now someone we know and love is asking the opposite question "Why did this baby come early?"

The next question you are probably asking is "What can I do to Help?" and that is an excellent question. Here are a few suggestions that are not clothing related (that will be included in the next Blog post).

ONE reason to Google Preemie Clothes!

Celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and Kenya Moore have recently brought to light the difficulty of finding Preemie clothes. Such a search is especially true for Preemie clothing sized under five pounds, made for the preemie still in the NICU with multiple medical attachments. They join the thousands of parents who have been on such a search for years, and this specific inquiry has birthed many online stores. That is how the Preemie Store launched over 30 years ago.

What Preemie Clothes does a Preemie Need?

What Preemie Clothes does a Preemie Need?

What kind of clothing do you need for the tiniest babies on earth? Finding clothing that meets the needs of preemie babies is not something you will find at many department or discount stores. Even though over 500,000 premature babies will be born in the United States alone this year (30,000 in Canada), this is still considered a “small” market for most baby clothing manufacturers.
