    Default preemie gift idea

    Hello~



    I have a friend who had her baby about 8 weeks early. He is only 4.9

    . Needless to say, he will be in the hospital for about 6 weeks.



    Does anyone have any ideas on gifts??? For mom and for baby??? I

    want to give the perfect gift!



    Thank you!

    I would say cooking meals for the family would be the perfect gift. My son was in the NICU for 12 days and I was happy not to have to worry about cooking between running to the hospital. Also premmie clothes and diapers are nice. Something to make mom feel pampered. I hope this helps, Patti

    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="185360814-18102007">What about a gift card to some place like Babies R Us? That way they can get what they need, like diapers or clothes or whatever.

    My baby was also 8 weeks early and was in the NICU for about 6 weeks (he'll be 4 months old at the end of this month and is doing great!) The whole process was really draining for me. Anything that took the pressures of everyday life off my shoulders was a huge relief. Even though I didn't necessarily spend hours and hours at the hospital it seemed like it consumed my day. Betweengoing back and forth to the hospital and pumping it seemed like I could get nothing accomplished at home. So any kind of help there would probably be very much appreciated, whether it's a meal or a little housekeeping or running errands or such. For mom how about a lunch date or a massage or a manicure. Mom might also need some transition clothes. Wearing maternity clothes can be a bit depressing in this situation and something new and prettycan't hurt. Baby is probably in an
    isolette right now and doesn't need anything, but he'll be out of that soon enoughand it would be nice to put him in his own clothes. T-shirts and onesies as well as receivingand larger blankets we're about all we used in the hospital but it helped a lot to see him surrounded by colorful baby stuff. Finding premmie sizes caninvolve a search but it was worth it to me to not have him swamped by huge clothes. Take care and good luck to your friend and her baby. Lori.

    I would say that giving the gift of your time to help with older

    siblings or meal preparation or even straightening up the house before

    baby comes home would be the most awesome gift for a NICU family.

    Another idea would be a motion sensing sleep pad, an assortment of tiny

    clothes (those can be hard to find when you need them), or a crib

    mobile (or toys) that is the black/white/red colors to help train

    babies eyes to focus would be very fitting. (Alot of premies need to

    develope this more then full term babies)

    Another idea is to offer to help with thank you cards, there are alot

    of places that donate to NICU babies and it adds to those pesky cards

    to fill out and keep track of. Maybe printing up thank you cards with

    babies name and birthdate on them might help the parents out... If they

    are close friends, you should be able to find their real need if you

    ask them what they are feeling overwhelmed by (besides worrying about

    baby)

    I hope all goes well for the little guy and his family.
