Now even the smallest of premature babies can wear a Christmas outfit


We've found some wonderful Christmas premature baby outfits and festive gifts.

Christmas is a tough time for families of a baby that’s on the NICU or SCBU; no one dreams of spending their little one’s first Christmas in hospital. What’s more if baby is particularly poorly it can be a really challenging time.

The medical team will do their best to provide some festive cheer and support these families over this period, and we want to do our bit too.

Of course Christmas outfits for premature babies aren't going to make a major difference, but every little helps, and parents of premature babies often tell us that just being able to dress their baby like other parents can helps them feel more ‘normal’ and reduces stress a little.

Considering buying a festive gift for a premature baby?

If you’re considering buying premature baby Christmas clothes as a gift, stop considering it, and do it!  :)

Families of babies on the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and specialist care unit (SCBU) love receiving gifts and cards, especially at Christmas time. It helps them know that people care and that their little baby is being celebrated. A very premature baby may be poorly, and sadly not all will make it, but don’t wait to send a Christmas card or New Baby card ‘just in case’.

Be considerate with what you write in a Christmas card for a premature baby, but don’t hesitate in sending one along with a gift. It can really make a difference to their day.
