Welcoming preemies into your life

Babies are a little bundle of joy to us. They are so delicate and sensitive that it takes a lot of courage and preparation for new parents to take care of them. Although all babies are very fragile, premature babies are the very sensitive ones and require a lot of attention after they are born.

Starting from these sensitive times to the sudden arrival of the baby, parents need to look for clothes that fit the little body. Thankfully, there are expert places available on social media and physical supermarkets that specializes in preemie clothing.

About premature babies

Before going into details about the clothes, let us first know some basic information about premature babies. Technically, babies who are born before 37 weeks of their due time are called preemies. According to March of Dimes, “About 1 in 10 babies is born prematurely each year in the United States.”

Ce tout petit nez là 💙. Mes triplets ont 7 semaines de vie qui équivaut à 34 semaines de grossesse! Logan pèse 1670gr (3,7lbs), Félix pèse 2010gr (4,4lb) et Nathan pèse 2060gr (4,5lbs). Logan c’est bien remis de son opération et il partage maintenant sa chambre avec Nathan. Félix lui est rendu dans les soins intermédiaires, car il va super bien et il a moins besoin d’aide respiratoire que ses frères. Plusieurs nouveautés dans les prochaines semaines, car on va pouvoir bientôt commencer les biberons. Une étape à la fois, on va sortir d’ici!! . . . . #triplets #identicaltriplets #tipletsboys #tripletslife #nicu #preemies #micropreemies #miraclebaby #prematurebaby #26weekers #7weeksold #cutelittlenose #lovethem

The earlier the baby is born, the more health issues it might face. Due to the ultra-sensitivity, the baby is kept in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) for close observation for a few days. The baby is considered out of danger after it weighs above 4lbs. Babies need to be able to breathe and provide warmth to the body by themselves.

It is highly advisable for parents of a preemie to stay in touch with the doctor constantly and follow up the routine tests.  

Buying tiny baby clothes by size and weight

For preemies, you need to look for clothes that are sized 00000. This is a very small size and fits for babies who are below 4lbs. It is highly essential to buy clothes according to the size but does not go overboard with the purchasing. As babies tend to grow fast, you might require a set of different sized clothes in a short span of time.

Try avoiding designer clothes and full bodysuits. Although they require the extra warmth to stay healthy, it is unwise to dress them up in designer clothes or clothes without an open-back as you might need to change their diapers often or take them up for check-ups.

Premature babies require a lot of attention and special caring. They are so little and sensitive that going for something other than organic fabric might cause irritation. It is very necessary to keep them under observation for sometime before buying a bunch of clothes for them. Ask the doctor before buying the clothes and that will save you more money and the hassle of irritating your baby’s skin.
