So actually any items that may be suitable would be greatly appreciated.

Louisiana
Ochsner NICU in New Orleans
Thanks so 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.

Soft yarn 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 wrapped in.
God bless all of you who donate your time to make our babies comfortable.
Sincerely,
Shelley Thibeau, RNC

"I just gave birth to a 24-week micro-preemie at Atlantic City Medical Center in NJ. During my visits to see my dear son, I learned that the NICU was in need of baby hats(all sizes), booties, & blankets. 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 email, since I recently moved in, to spend as much time with my son as I can. Thank you so much."

“Knits for Infants,” we accept items for babies from 4 lbs through about 12-18 months. Any baby items are appreciated, they should be knitted from soft yarn (any type as long as it’s not scratchy, we prefer that it’s not from Red Heart Super Saver but other soft Red Heart is fine). If the item is non-superwash wool, it should be noted as such. we gratefully accept new or gently used baby clothes, as the families are usually in need of such items and really appreciate them!

They are need of help. No preemies, but newborns. They are in dire need of newborn blankets right now, especially for going home, as the mothers really have nothing to wrap the babies up in. So blankies are a first priority but they also need newborn sleepers, hats,  booties,sweaters, robes, diaper shirts, in newborn sizes only. But blankies first.

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!)
Thanks in advance from our babies and nurses

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.

Needs: Blankets, clothes and soft toys for newborn babies
General: In a nut shell, we are helping to support young women with basic needs who would have otherwise aborted their pregnancy as a result of being overwhelmed by the seemingly impossible task to care for their unborn child. These needs are diverse, and we try here and there to help as we feel led. One thing we do for all is try to give each new baby a generous hamper of baby clothes to start him/her off. I've been collecting as much as I can, but generally run short as each little baby makes quite a dent in a bunch of things that has taken months to collect. If you are able to help in any way or would like any more information, please don't hesitate to contact me! :)

STEVE BIKO ACADEMIC HOSPITAL: Please join me in helping to send every baby born at Steve Biko Academic Hospital home in something warm and cosy.  Steve Biko Academic Hospital is located in Pretoria.   Most of the families who have babies there have nothing to bring their babies home in. That’s where we come in. My group, “Amor for prem, Aids and Cancer baby's” (affiliated to The Ruth Mailbag Group), provides warm, handmade, bought or good quality gently used items for these families.
Please send donations to me at “Amor for prem, Aids and Cancer baby's” (affiliated to The Ruth Mailbag Group), Sarah Kuipers, PO Box 13746, Sinoville, South Africa.
