Teeny Tears is a service organization that provides tiny flannel diapers to hospitals and bereavement support organizations for families that have suffered the loss of a preemie through stillbirth or NICU loss. We have been very fortunate to receive these tiny diapers for our infant bereavement program.
To begin making the diapers for The Preemie Project or to otherwise volunteer for this wonderful organization, please go to the Teeny Tears website for information.
The Preemie Project needs 1/2 of the diapers in the smaller size and 1/2 of the diapers the larger size.
The hospitals we donate to request that the diapers be made with flannel in tiny, subdued prints such as tiny polka dot, stars, hearts etc. Soft shades of blue and pink are most needed. We also need fewer numbers of diapers made from solid color flannel diapers in pale shades of pink, blue, white, cream to pair with gowns made from wedding dresses.
- Do not use any cartoonish character fabric for any bereavement item. Tiny subdued prints such as polka dots, hearts, stars etc are requested by the hospitals we donate to.
- Please see the Teeny Tears website for detailed instructions on sewing the diapers.
