to Send Preemie and Newborn items
of Hospitals ~*~ (link updated-May 2001) who need preemie and baby
Hospital, Baltimore, MD ~ is in need of preemie-newborn items.
Memorial Fund ~ items needed for preemies in memory of their triplets
Since many of the ideas here
are for making baby hats I thought we could use some size guidelines--keep
in mind that the hats will stretch a little. These are based on the little
hats I have made, and from talking to the nursery nurses hospitals. Since
come in all sizes, any sized hat will be appreciated... but the most needed
sizes are for the Full Term, Large and Medium Preemies.
