Blanket Sleepers

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.

How Can You Help?

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.

Sleeper Guidelines

  • Blanket sleepers should be made from colorful baby print fleece only.
  • Separating zippers are used in the sleepers. The zipper is place upside down, per our pattern, for easy access to lines and diaper changes.
  • Please check the sleeper for pins and loose threads before donating, thank you!
