These clothes are carefully made with premature babies in mind. Every detail is there to keep a fragile preemie safe and comfortable. I hope it can help individual families as well as hospitals.
Parksville, British Columbia (PRWEB) October 15, 2008
teenieWeeniePreemieWear.com carries a diverse inventory of clothing, accessories, and hospital garments for premature infants, both male and female. Standard baby clothing can prove irritating to fragile infants, while these clothes utilize lightweight Velcro, Peruvian cotton, and designs to accommodate medical equipment.
The site, which was launched in September 2007, was founded by Linda Bonneau. Realizing that premature children did not have many clothing options outside of swaddling blankets, Bonneau decided to fulfill that need with her website.
"Even the smallest infant clothing in stores today does not come close to fitting a preemie," said Bonneau. "Plus the fabric can chafe their rice paper thin skin. Preemies need specially designed clothing, and that's what this site looks to provide."
The products on the site use creative design tactics such as Velcro closure instead of buttons or snaps. This ensures the baby does not have to be unnecessarily moved for diaper changes or medical procedures. These Velcro tabs are also used to contain and redirect medical tubes so that the baby doesn't inadvertently remove necessary medical equipment.
Changing out their inventory often, the site consistently receives new designs and products every few months.
"This is not a regular baby site," said Bonneau. "These clothes are carefully made with premature babies in mind. Every detail is there to keep a fragile preemie safe and comfortable. I hope it can help individual families as well as hospitals."
The site has also recently implemented a new blog, found at http://www.PreemieBabyInfo.com. It will contain a series of posts related to preemie health as well as tips for the family from incubator life to special preemie skin care and more.
TeenieWeeniePreemieWear.com was founded by Linda Bonneau in September 2007. Grandmother to a premature grandson, Bonneau was shocked at the price of clothing tailor made for premature infants. Wanting to offer a more cost-effective but high quality product, Bonneau established her site. Since its launch, the site has expanded to include hospital garments, shirts, hats, bibs, and other clothing options for premature boys and girls. Unlike typical infant clothing, the fabric does not irritate thin, fragile skin, and some are designed to accommodate various medical tubes and equipment.
