Clothing Considerations for Preemies

Clothing Considerations for Preemies

The babies we refer to as Preemies, usually crash into our world very unexpectedly and surprise us when we are not ready - mentally, physically or any other way! These unique little ones can also come with all kinds of special needs: beds, wires, monitors and tubes to name a few. Keeping up with these special needs and communicating the “preemie lingo” with caregivers can be overwhelming at times. We are in the business of trying to help at least one of these challenges - clothing! Some people may say it's not necessary, but we have a different opinion about that. Who doesn't want to put something cute and stylish on your new baby, no matter what size they are? So we have designed many styles that will work with wires, monitors, IV's and the like. Our NIC-line provides very easy dressing with no pulling over the head. Rather it is simply laying the premature baby down on the garment and bringing around the fabric to close around the wires or IV. Since preemies often have sensitive skin, we keep this in mind when we pick out fabrics. Our Nic-Suit doesn't have any seams, and the reversible styles in the NIC-IV's have no exposed seams. Along with our NIC line of clothing, we also offer cute little caps which are always good to add a little warmth and style. Leg-warmers and booties can also be added to a shirt or gown, or by themselves if a shirt or nightshirt is not yet allowed.
