Welcome Preemie is a clothing line strictly for premature and low birth weight babies.
Welcome Preemie provides clothing for your baby in the Neonatal ICU or Special Care Nursery. Clothing that is comfortable and accommodating to medical devices
According to the March of Dimes "a premature birth is the birth of a baby before 37 completed weeks of pregnancy." It is known that about 1 in 10 babies in the United States are born prematurely. Low Birth Weight babies are born weighing less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces. About 1 in every 12 babies in the United States are born with low birth weight. (Source: marchofdimes.org)
Our main goal is to provide comfortable and convenient clothing. Welcome Preemie provides clothing and accessories that allows easy access to Intravenous Lines, Feeding Tubes, Electrocardiogram wires and any other external devices in use while patients are in the hospital. We also have kept the babies and parents in mind while designing our clothing line as dressing a premature baby with external devices can be very stressful to the baby and also very frightening for the parents. We are designing a line that will allow dressing to be a positive experience for both baby and parents while in the hospital.
