Little Mouse are delighted to announce that we can now deliver premature baby clothes to families in Ireland. With more choice of quality premature baby clothing than anywhere else!
We have always provided delivery of our premature baby clothing and gifts to Northern Ireland as part of Royal Mail’s UK delivery service, but we have now expanded to offer delivery to Ireland along with many other countries worldwide.
Finding premature baby clothes in Ireland is a real challenge, with few retailers selling premature baby clothing sizes, let alone clothes for tiny-prem babies in the 1lb-3lb size category. There were two stores that had a quite a good range, www.babyboos.ie and www.babynation.ie, but neither is still in business in Ireland.
But not to worry, we have the biggest range of quality premature baby clothes in the UK and available for shipping to Ireland. Sizes include 1lb-3lb (premature), 3lb-5lb (early baby) and 4lb-7lb (tiny baby).
Help for families of premature babies in Ireland
There’s a wonderful organisation in Ireland called Irish Premature Babies. After leaving the NICU with a second premature baby in 2009, the founder of Irish Premature Babies felt that since having her first premature baby in 2006 that there was still not enough readily available information or support for parents when they have a premature baby in Ireland.
Ireland in 2009 had very little that represented and promoted the welfare of parents of premature babies and according to the most recent statistics from the Central Statistics Office, there are over 4,500 babies born before 37 weeks in Ireland thus highlighting the need for parents to feel represented and cared about, and a need for suitable premature baby clothes in Ireland. So in December 2009, she decided to address these issues and try to make life a little easier for parents throughout the country.
Irish Premature Babies has a really useful website that includes:
- Practical information for parents and families of premature babies in Ireland
- Rights and entitlements
- Books & Aps about prematurity issues
- Claiming your refunds/benefits
- Weight conversion chart (great for helping find premature baby clothes)
- Feeding issues prem babies may have
- Medical issues affecting premature babies in Ireland and elsewhere
- Kangaroo care - the benefits and tips for parents
In 2011 Irish Premature Babies achieved charitable status and the charity is still growing at a phenomenal rate and evolving and developing to meet the challenges that are faced by families of premature babies each day in Ireland.
