Not all premature baby clothes are created equally
No donít panic there are a few on line shops that care more about their customers requirements than their profit margin.† One such shop is Prem2Pram who stock not only premature baby clothes in sizes from 0lbs upwards but who also stock NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) safe incubator clothing
Parent are confronted with a problem as not all premature baby clothing is created equal, what I mean by this is that the basic lines of premature baby clothing stocked by the various high street shops are mass produced abroad. As a result the clothing is often incorrectly sized and unsuitable for low birth weight babies who are connected to the various medical equipment required to monitor the health.
For example a premature baby in NICU or SCBU (Special Care Baby Unit) will more than likely have a pulse oximeter fitted to its foot.† If the baby only has sleepsuits with feet in them, then every time the medical staff needs to check or move the pulse oximeter they are going to have to partially undress the baby, causing unnecessarily disturbance.† If the same baby is wearing a footless sleep suit then the pulse oximeter can be checked without the need to undress the baby, thus minimising the disturbance to baby.
Donít panic there are a few on line shops that care more about their customers requirements than their profit margin.† One such shop is Prem2Pram who stock not only premature baby clothes in sizes from 0lbs upwards but who also stock NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) safe incubator clothing.† Prem2Pramís latest range includes a hospital safe personalised premature baby gift set that has been specifically designed for premature babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.† The gift set includes a personalised incubator safe footless sleepsuit, which opens out flat and a wrap over vest, which also opens out flat thus making undressing and dressing baby quick and easy for both parents and medical staff.† A personalised incubator hat and a pair of scratch mittens are also included.
Anyone who has experienced life on the NICU will tell you that itís the little things that can and do make a huge difference.† NICU Staff encourage parents to keep things as normal as possible and this includes dressing their baby in beautiful, comfortable and practical clothing because at some point, parents have to look past all of the monitors and drips and see the baby..
