Micro Preemie Clothes
Clothes that are especially designed to meet the unique needs of a micropreemie
Here's the awesomely clever gown specifically designed for the NICU preemie.
Our NICU Wrap Gowns combine the comfort and coverage of a traditional sleeping gown with the ingenuity of our NICU Wrap Shirt. There's never a need to pull the gown over the head or hand through a sleeve. The front panels fold over the shoulder and are fixed in place with two side flaps that are fastened with Velcro®. In like manner the sleeves are formed by folding a flap around the underside of the arm and affixed to the front.
NICU Wraps are the easy way to dress a well-connected micro preemie.
Often NICU preemies require leads from head, chest, and/or limbs as well as tubes to the mouth and nose. These connections make pulling a shirt or gown over baby’s head or threading tiny hands through sleeves impossible! That’s why the NICU Wrap was developed. Simply place your baby on the flat, opened wrap and fold the front panels over the shoulders. Then fold the side panels around the front and fasten with the Velcro fastener.
Micropreemie sleeping gowns keep baby warm and make nighttime diaper changes easy for mom and baby
Baby's whimpering awakens you at 1 a.m. You've only been asleep for 2 hours, you're exhausted... a diaper change is needed. Thankfully she's wearing a sleeping gown! You slip the gown up, replace the diaper, pull the gown down, and both of you are back to sleep in no time. So much easier than negotiating the legs of a sleeper in the middle of the night — an unnecessary frustration for you and your little one.
Choose from traditional gowns, converter gowns that easily convert to rompers with a few snaps, kimono-style gowns that wrap around baby and fasten with Velcro, and several gown sets that include a hat.
Sleepers and rompers — Versatile one-piece outfits in a micro preemie size
Sleepers play an essential role in the micropreemie layette because they help ensure that arms, legs, and feet stay covered. Rompers provide similar protection except they are not footed.
Unlike sleeping gowns these garments usually make a fashion statement that says: "I'm dressed for the day, Let's play!" These positive "I'm awake and alive" vibes can't help but cheer up parents and care-givers which, in turn, provide positive stimulation for a struggling preemie.
Also, because footies and rompers are easily identified as "day wear" and ensure good coverage and warmth for baby, many parents select one of these coveralls as baby's "take-me-home" outfit.
One-piece bodysuits and kimono t-shirts are perfect for the heated NICU isolette
Micropreemies in a heated incubator don't need a lot of clothes to stay warm. However, research seems to indicate that these babies enjoy and have an improved ability to thrive when dressed. Simple shirts/tops can be just the ticket.
The traditional bodysuit (commonly called a Onesie®) is a great choice and we have several that are especially sized for the micro preemie. The obvious advantage of the bodysuit is that it fastens in the crotch which keeps it from bunching up around the belly as the baby moves or is repositioned after feeding or a diaper change.
Kimono-style T-shirts are much easier to slip on and off because they simply wrap around the body like a robe and fasten at the side with Velcro® fasteners. Our shirts and tops can be worn alone, or with coordinating pants, or as an undergarment if layering is desired.
Turn shirts and tops into a complete outfit with coordinated pants/bottoms
Sometimes a bodysuit or a kimono t-shirt is enough and yet, at times, a little warmth for the legs is needed. We feature a selection of cuffed pants, legging pants (without cuffs) as well as some pre-matched pants sets. All are sized and especially designed for the micro preemie.
Warning! Putting your micropreemie girl in a dress might make her a cuddle magnet
She already grabs attention like little else on the planet. One of our dresses could make her irresistible. Of course, studies suggest that all that positive attention may help her to thrive... and besides, who's more deserving of continual, tender affection?
By the way, send us a picture, we'd love to post it for the world to see!
Hats, booties, socks, shoes and scratch mitts designed especially for preemie babies...
Over 50 hat, cap and bonnet designed especially for preemie babies...
Hats for a baby are more than an accessory. Covering your babies head helps to keep her warm. More body heat escapes from the head — in babies and adults — than from any other part of the body. Choose from a nice variety of hats and caps specifically designed for that tiny little head.
Preemie toes are sooooo kissible but they are susceptible to getting cold!
Booties, socks, tights, leg warmers all contribute to the important task of keeping your baby's legs and feet warm. These are particularly helpful if you're partial to sleeping gowns, dresses, or shorts. They're also important if you are dressing him or her up for a special religious occasion such as a baptism, dedication, or christening.
Tiny fingernails can be sharp and are able to scratch baby's delicate face. Scratch mitts to the rescue. Not only do they keep flailing fingers from doing damage, they also provide some comfort and warmth for your baby.
TIP: Order a couple of sets since mitts, like socks, tend to loose their mates!
