Measurements Update

Please note the following changes to our Measurement Guidelines. These guidelines are made in consultation with the staff at the UIHC NICU we support.

Revised Blanket Measurements

  * Standard NICU blanket: 30” to 42” square
  * X-Large: 42” to 50” square

Blankets smaller than these sizes are not used at UIHC NICU.
Blankets may be knit or Crochet.  The blanket should not have excessively large holes and should be made from the softest yarns.
Sewn blankets for use in the NICU should be made from Fleece or flannel.  Quilts or other blankets with seams through the blankets or ties, cannot be used in the NICU.  Quilts will be donated for going home supplies and should be of standard or x-large size.

The NICU at University Hospital does NOT use Sleep Sacks like the popular Preemie Ripple Sleep Sack.  Knit or crochet blankets are preferred for use with the fragile preemies.
