much for your interest in our NICU. We love the homemade
products as do our parents. Our dream wish list would include burial
gowns that are white(can have small amount of embroidery), open in the
front is best with sleeves that are generous. Unfortunately when most
premies die they are swollen with extra fluid so we need a preemie size
that is flexible. Newborn sizes are needed as well. The soft
stretchy fabric makes great hats. Socks with embroidery make great
covers for feet as well as tiny hands.
with limited fuzz can be used to knit warm items. Preemies
have delicate skin prone to irritation so many yarns are uncomfortable
for them. We do use small blankets as an outer blanket but our real
need is soft fleece sheets/blankets that the babies can lay on or be

So, this lead me to put my beginning crochet skills to work. I made a
few hats, thanks to your website, however I would like for the hospital
to be bless with the other items they need. I would really appreciate
it, if you would put the hospital information on your site. I could be contacted as well via

We can use most any size, shape and type of blanket. The blankets are sent home with the babies. We would also be thrilled to receive isolette covers- big enough to block out the bright lights and dark on the side facing the baby. The really fancy ones have flaps and end covers. Anything new and baby friendly would be happily put to use. The new nursery will be done in soft greens and blues...
There is always a need for hats and booties if those are available. We tend to run out of the ones for 5-7 pound babies first. (Blow a balloon up till it measures 14" around the diameter and make the hat that size!)

Let me tell you about our LAMB program. LAMB stands for Love A Mother's
Baby. It is geared for the children and family caretakers of
incarcerated mothers. Many women enter prison pregnant and we provide
layettes and spiritual support for the mother and family caretakers.
While I crochet some of the layettes and afghans, I need to involve
other outreach groups to donate time and materials for this effort. I
have one person from church now donating yarn and this is keeping me
busy on the limited amout of patterns I have. We request donations of
baby yarn but sometimes we take any yarn we can get.
