- Our Story
"How did you get started in Preemie clothing?" You can just imagine how many times I've been asked that question over the years since I started in 1993. "Did you have a Preemie?" is usually the second question that gets asked even before I can answer the first! Actually, someone I knew in church had a Preemie baby and nobody was able to find any suitable or affordable clothing for it. I told them, "I can make Preemie clothes!" You see, I had sewn all my life, from my own clothes to clothing for my 3 children. And when I discovered the need, it became my passion to research and design a line of Preemie clothing that would truly address their unique requirements and sizing.
Of course, I don't personally sew everything we manufacture today - but I could! We've far outgrown what I can produce alone. We have a team of great people that manufacture our Preemie clothes right here in the USA. We offer our Perfectly Preemie Signature Design line in 4 Preemie sizes - starting at just 1-2.5 pounds, along with a bevy of carefully selected products from other Preemie brands and suppliers. It is our goal to have everything you need for your Preemie right here under your fingertips at Perfectly Preemie.
Thank you for spending your valuable time and resources shopping at our store! Please feel free to drop me a line with your Preemie story (send pics), suggestions, ideas or any feedback you may have.
I really care,
Things that set us apart...
When you shop with Perfectly Preemie, you can count on receiving the best, innovative products available for premature babies and fun styles for going home. We are simply passionate about helping Preemies! Even as the availability of preemie clothes has increased in the last few years, we have found that not all of them address the special needs that preemies have, either in the NICU or in the transition home. At Perfectly Preemie, we offer a variety of different styles of customized preemie clothing made specifically to meet these very real needs.
Research has found that the contact made with clothing preemies may contribute to higher survival rates and faster growth rates prompting preemies to be released from the NICU more rapidly. We help facilitate this with great preemie clothes that work perfectly in the hospital and at home. Our Nic-Tee's, Nic-Gown's, Crossover-Tee's, and Crossover-Gowns start at Micro-Preemie size and offer shoulder openings for easy access. Our double snap style provides easy dressing and openings on either side for monitor leads. The lap style necklines on our preemie clothes work wonderfully for preemie baby's tiny necks, allowing much easier dressing. Closures on these preemie clothes vary from velcro, plastic snaps, ties and classic snaps, to meet the many different needs of these little miracles.
So, why shop with us?
"Why shop here?" Even though there are new storefronts opening on the web all the time, they will be hard-pressed to come anywhere close to matching our experience, sizing and selection. Since 1993, we've done the medical research, consulted with NICU staff, and dialogued with Preemie parents to determine just what a Preemie baby needs in regard to their clothing and accessories. We manufacture our own Perfectly Preemie Signature Design line of clothing to best meet these requirements. We've also looked far and wide for the best Preemie gear and products from other manufacturers to ensure that you find everything needed here in one stop.

1. Perfectly Preemie manufactures our own line of clothing, which enables us to implement the research obtained from NICUs and premature baby providers across the country. Our uniquely designed styles work very well in the NICU for many reasons. Most importantly, is the garment's great ease of use - just lay the baby down and snap up around them. This is perfect for less stress on the little one while making allowances for tubes and wires. Furthermore, the plastic snaps we use will not overheat in the isolettes. For more detailed information on what you must have for your preemie, including additional examples of our customized styles, click here.
2. Perfectly Preemie supplies a large selection of clothing for the smallest preemie through the preemie ready to go home. We do this by offering 3 distinct Preemie sizes plus Newborn: Micro (1-2.5lbs, 11-15"), Teeiny (2-4lbs, 14.5-16.5"), Preemie (3-6lbs, 15-18.5"), Newborn (5-8lbs, 17.5-21"). It is important that the clothing actually fits the Preemie in such a way that allows the built-in functionality to work as designed. We also understand that the product available for the 2lb Preemie isn’t necessarily the same thing required or wanted for the tiny newborn on their way home.
3. Perfectly Preemie's pledge to you is that our goods and service will be of the utmost quality. Our fine finishing is what sets us apart from our competition. For example, instead of just surging the edges of our garments, wherever possible, we bind or cover-stitch for a much better and cleaner look. Furthermore, we only select the top products made by reputable manufacturers to round out our complete on-line catalog.
4. Perfectly Preemie furnishes great prices to our customers because we control the manufacturing of our own product line. We also purchase additional products and accessories from top Preemie suppliers at quantities that allow us to pass the savings on to you.
5. Perfectly Preemie provides fast and easy shipping for all customers. We offer Free Super Saver Shipping (USPS First Class) for most orders over $49.99. If you want your order faster, the Flat Rate shipping of just $6.95 for any size US order provides you with USPS Priority Mail delivery which only takes 2-3 days from the time the order is shipped. We ship out your order quickly, usually the same day the order is received or the next, depending on the time of day. We understand the need for quick service for these "small but special" customers!
