Essential NICU Apparel for the Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Walking into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is like entering a whole new world, especially when it comes to finding the right clothes for your little one. It can feel overwhelming trying to figure out what works best. That's why I want to shine a spotlight on one of our top-selling styles: NICU Gowns, Shirts, and Dresses. They all share the same basic features, but let's take a closer look at why these details are crucial in the NICU.

Here's a guide to essential NICU apparel designed to provide comfort, functionality, and support during your baby's time in the hospital:

  1. Preemie-Sized Clothing: NICU babies often require clothing specifically tailored to their smaller size and unique medical needs. Look for preemie-sized outfits made from soft, gentle fabrics that won't irritate sensitive skin. These garments should be easy to put on and take off, allowing for quick access during medical procedures and diaper changes.

  2. Access-Friendly Designs: Accessibility is key when dressing a baby in the NICU, where wires, tubes, and monitors are a part of daily life. Clothing with open designs and Velcro fastenings provide easy access to your baby's medical equipment without compromising on comfort or warmth.

  3. Gentle Touch Fabrics: Babies in the NICU have delicate skin that requires extra care and attention. Select clothing made from soft, breathable fabrics like cotton or bamboo, which are gentle on sensitive skin and reduce the risk of irritation or chafing.

  4. Parental Comfort: As a parent spending time in the NICU, your comfort matters too. Choose clothing for your baby that is easy to launder and maintain, allowing you to focus on your baby's care without added stress or hassle.

Here's why we've crafted these simple NICU-Friendly Gowns, Dresses, and Shirts:

First off, let's talk about the Velcro we use. We call it "Sleek and Thin," and we teamed up with Velcro to develop it. It's the softest option out there and works like a charm for preemie clothing. If you want to dive deeper into our collaboration with Velcro, click here.

Now, onto the fabric – it's the real star of these NICU outfits. We've sourced a bamboo fabric that's thicker than most, and it's got a brushed inside that feels just like flannel against your baby's skin. Trust us, it's pure comfort for those tiny bodies.

And speaking of tiny bodies, we know how important it is to get the size just right. That's why we offer multiple sizes, starting from Micro for those 1-2.5 pound bundles of joy. Then there's Teeny for the 2-4 pounders – a perfect in-between size for growing preemies. Of course, we've got Preemie size for the 3-6 pounders. But we haven't forgotten about the bigger babies either – we've added Take-me-Home for the 5-8 pounders and 0-3 Months for those larger little ones who might end up in the PICU.

So, why did we create the NICU Gown, Shirt, and Dresses for preemie parents? It's simple – we want to make life a little easier and a lot cozier for you and your little one. And to add a cherry on top, we've got a variety of prints to choose from. We have many prints from happy and fun "Sunshine"

, bright and cheerful "Watercolor Floral" 

or venturing into the wild with our "Safari".

there's something to suit every mood. In fact, the hardest part might just be deciding which one to pick – so why not grab them all? Your little bundle of joy deserves to be wrapped in happiness, after all.

If all the details havent convinced you that these NICU Gown, Shirts and Dresses aren't the best. The feedback we are hearing from customers is simply wonderful:

"Those bamboo fabrics are HEAVENLY for my baby niece."

"This was a gift!! The gown is beautiful and so soft!"

"The gown was so soft and fit perfectly!"

"This little yellow sleeper is sooo soft! And stretchy too. Definitely recommend!"
