Five Things to Say to a NICU Family

Five Things to Say to a NICU Family

We rarely know ahead of time that we will be having a premature baby. Commonly, premature birth occurs out of nowhere. You are excited and planning for a birth which you think is many days away. Preparing the nursery, buying clothing, looking forward to your baby shower and so many other things. Then all of a sudden you are in the hospital, dealing with unknown medical issues as well as a new teeny baby with all the NICU complications! This new NICU mother wrote this great article to help those who surround new preemie parents. With FIVE things to say to encourage new preemie parents.

Five Things that Make Bamboo So Great!

Five Things that Make Bamboo So Great!

Brands like KicKee Pants and Perfectly Preemie have boosted the offerings for bamboo preemie clothes. We have received inquiries from customers asking what all the hype is over Bamboo fabrics. I thought it was an excellent question and here is my attempt to shed some light on this beautiful fabric. Below I have listed five of my top reasons that contribute to why bamboo is so great. These are not listed in any particular order. However, I did put the softest on top for a reason! You will understand this if you have ever felt bamboo. It is just wonderfully soft. So why wouldn't a preemie agree and love having some of the softest fabric next to their skin? The only downside is that bamboo fabric is harder to find and costs more, but I am sure as time goes by there will be more fabric choices available in bamboo and items made with it will come down in price.

  • One of the softest fabrics on the planet - you'll love the way it feels
  • Antibacterial - keeps you odor free and feeling and smelling fresh
  • Powerfully insulating - keeps you cooler in summer and warmer in winter
  • Hypoallergenic - natural bamboo does not cause allergic reactions
  • Most eco-friendly fabric on the planet - help save your planet

A New Kick with KicKee Pants

A New Kick with KicKee Pants

We would like to introduce you to a Brand new to the Preemie Store. KicKee Pants is a bright, fun, unique, and super soft bamboo line which started just down the street from us in Bainbridge Island, WA. They have carried a preemie size for many years, this year they added a Micro-preemie size which we are very excited about. The preemie size is rated 4-7lbs and the micro-preemie is 3-5lbs. The size difference is not the only difference between these two footies. The micro-preemie also offers plastic snap closures which work wonderfully for a preemie in a warmer bed. The metal snaps can warm up and create an issue on preemie's tender skin. The inside of the footie is also lined with soft fleece which helps keep little toes warm and cozy. Both sizes have fold-over mittens for little hands.

KicKee Pants also is different than many lines that deliver only new fabrics twice a year. The owner of KicKee Pants wanted to provide more options for parents, so we will have updated prints 6 times a year, plus super fun prints for Christmas. 

I hope you give KicKee Pants a try and let us know how you LOVE them. You know we LOVE seeing your pictures!

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.
