charity_preemies Info on Making Items for Preemies The following information was posted to one of my e-mail lists. I e-mailed the member for permission to reprint the article and she graciously allowed me to share it with you all. I have organized it by topic and highlighted important information for your convenience but the words are hers. Also I have included additional information from Aunt B below Maureen’s article. Please also note that while white is suggested here for blankies, I have made preemie hats in many colors for preemie efforts which have been readily received. Crocheting for Preemies©2007 Maureen Moniz I can tell you from 20 + years of personal experience as a NICU nurse, the preemie items ARE CERTAINLY USED by the NICU nurses in any hospital.This is especially true of inner city hospitals that serve a low income population and therefore the parents may not have the means to purchase even little personal items for their baby. Thanks to Maureen for providing this valuable information.
