The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends placing babies on their backs to sleep, while wearing a blanket sleeper, instead of using loose blankets to decrease the incidence of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). We invite you to read the AAP recommendations on safe sleeping practices.
Make and donate sleepers on your own time. You can download the pattern here. The finished sleepers will go to our Family Support program. The sleepers are given to families that are experiencing financial crisis due to the stress of having a baby in the NICU.
NOTE: The only size of sleeper that is needed at this time is the 9-11lb size
