That sweet little baby decided to come early, and Perfectly Preemie is here to help!

What in the world do you need for the tiniest babies on earth? Perfectly Preemie was started by a mother of three who has been designing and manufacturing preemie clothes for over 20 years. Cressie has done her research with the Doctors, Nurses and Parents of preemies, and knows what is required in the NICU and for heading home. Some of our styles we began with back in 1993, with some updates and new trim styles, but basically the same. We also have added several new styles like the jumpsuit which is LOVED by all who try it. I have listed many of them below and hope you find exactly what your preemie needs. 

Perfectly Preemie is the only manufacture to offer three sizes to assure the best fit for your preemie. These sizes are Micro (1-2.5lbs), Teeny (2-4lbs) and Preemie (3-6lbs). Because of the request of many parents, we are increasing our offerings in the Take-Me-Home size (5-8lbs).

Please take a look around and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have at If you see our cute little face in the chat icon, please ask away!

The Gang at Perfectly Preemie 

Our first recommendation is:


This style provides the access needed in the NICU with velcro opening shoulders for easy on and off and working around medical needs. We have used velcro as closures because of it's quickness in opening. We do use the softest velcro possible and we think of where we put the hook and loop on all our styles, making sure the softest side is the one closest to the baby. This style is offered in all three sizes Micro - Preemie


These little T-shirts are a great beginning for any size preemie, they are offered in the three sizes Micro-Preemie. They have a velcro closure in the front and wrap up around the diaper with ties on each side for a sweet look that's easy to wear. 


This is the only style that is made from two completely separate pieces. Providing super easy dressing, access to the chest and diaper for quick changes. The reversible styles give two completely different looks.  Sizes: Micro-Preemie


These tiny garments are made with the NICU in mind. With velcro or plastic snaps on the shoulders and down the front that make dealing with IV's and monitors a breeze. The Long Sleeve NIC-Sac’s are the only gowns with plastic snaps available on the market. The snaps do not heat up and potentially hurt the skin, or interfere with x-rays. Sizes: Teeny-Preemie


NIC-Jumpsuit  **NICU Friendly
Is a combination of our NIC-IV shirt and the playsuit. With the access to the shoulders for easy on and off and velcro at the crotch for quick diaper changes. This garment opens completely flat for the easiest dressing, and is made in a multitude of adorable fabrics for the ultimate "cute" NICU-friendly garment around. Size: Preemie


Crossover Baggette
This is a combination of our Side Snap Gowns and Baggettes. Unlike the Nightshirts the Crossover has velcro closures rather than snaps, which are a little quicker closing. Mitten cuffs and the fold-over bottom keeps the little hands and toes covered. Size: Teeny - Preemie


This long bag has a fold over bottom to keep toes warm & cozy while still providing easy access for those diaper changes. Fold over knit cuffs help to keep the hands covered and warm and their face free from scratches. The fold over bottom prevents the bag from riding up during sleeping, yet still giving great access. This is a better alternative to the old elastic bottoms and string pull ties. Sizes: Preemie-Take-me-Home.


These gowns work wonderfully well for easy dressing, just open them up, lay down baby and snap a few snaps on each side. An open bottom gives access for any diaper change or other need in the NICU. The sleeves have great fold over cuffs to cover those little hands.


One pieces (aka: as footies or sleep 'n plays and playsuits) are great because they cover head to toe and won't bunch up on baby. They are so cute and practical at the same time! These are the perfect grab and go style.


Other Clothing & Accessories

Keep a few at the hospital for a little extra warmth. Some hospitals have times when they may not want the preemie dressed, so having some cute hats ready to help hold in their body heat is always welcomed. 

Several pairs of socks and booties are needed to keep those little feet warm and we have extremely cute choices for you! 

We suggest at least a few pairs to keep their face free from scratches - especially if the baby is wearing something without fold-over cuffs. You know babies just love to have their hands up near their face!
