Bringing a child into this world is an exciting time, but unfortunately some babies are born prematurely and must spend extra time at the hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICO). Not only can this be a stressful time for those families, but often these parents are left unprepared without appropriate clothing for their child while at the NCIU. Since most 0-3 month clothing sizes are designed to fit babies that weigh 7-9 pounds, this clothing is way too big for a baby that only weighs 3-5 pounds!
This is why we are asking for your help! We are working to collect preemie and newborn clothing for the NCIU at Covenant Hospital in Saginaw so that we can provide parents with clothing for their baby that fits properly, and try to help "normalize" the parenting experience during that time. The new or like-new preemie and newborn clothing must snap or button on the front only, in order to accommodate wires and tubes (no zippers). This year, pajamas and sleep sacks are also needed, and since more sleep sacks have zippers, that will be acceptable.
To donate to the 5th Annual PJ's for Preemies Clothing Drive, just stop by Graff Bay City! We're also excited to announce that we will match whatever donations we receive!
