Parents of preemies now have a place to keep their child's milestones and memories. The new Preemie Book of Memories, the first and only spiral bound baby book of its kind, is now available at (retail $16.99). Created and marketed by Indianapolis couple Erin and Bob Taylor, parents of twin preemie girls, the book is the foundation of the couple's new business venture Kenzie's Hat Books & Gifts, offering products for preemies and beyond.

About the Preemie Book of Memories
The book is designed especially for premature babies. It includes pages to record all of the typical things found in a baby book such as birth date, parent's names, grandparent's names, photos, and many firsts.

It also includes record keeping for memories unique to preemie parents, such as 'my home for awhile,' day-by-day and week-by-week recording, a weight conversion chart and a removable bereavement section. It also features pages for parents to journal and offers ideas on what to record such as the baby's first cry, tear, diaper change and date baby can wear real clothes. The memory book also includes places to record the name of the NICU caregivers and NICU neighbors.

Throughout the Preemie Book of Memories parents will find inspirational quotes and words of wisdom from Erin. In the "How to Use This Book" section, written by Erin, she says to preemie parents:

As you begin your journey the new parent of a preemie, remember how special you are to have been chosen to receive such a precious gift. You will learn about things and enter a world that many people do not know exists…. Won't it be nice to share this incredible journey with your child someday, so they may understand just how wonderful and miraculous they really are?

About Kenzie's HAT
Mom, Erin Taylor, developed the baby book and idea for preemie products after she and her husband experienced the premature births of their twin daughters Mackenzie Jordon and Haley Addison at 24 weeks into Erin's pregnancy. Sadly Haley lived only six days. Her sister Mackenzie today is a happy, healthy 4 year-old.

During the experience in the NICU the Taylors could not find a baby book or preemie specific gifts for Mackenzie. The experience and realization for the need for preemie products led to the creation of the Preemie Book of Memories and the founding of Kenzie's Hat Books & Gifts, which is named for their daughters Kenzie and Haley Addison Taylor (HAT).

Erin is a professional graphic designer. She envisioned the book, wrote the text and designed the final product. Bob works in sales. Over the last several months they have approached hospital gift shops, NICU staff and a few retailers to gauge their reaction to the book.

Over the last six months they have successfully worked with over 30 retailers and hospital NICU's that are offering the book.

We are very excited to have something that specialized to carry. Those parents with preemie babies have trouble finding products made especially for them, and that was one of the reasons why we liked it so much," said Amanda Griffiths, Trinity Regional Health Gift Shop, Retail Manager in Rock Island, IL.
