      My little niece was born weighing only 2 pounds and I remember finding clothing for her was so hard, several times we bought clothes for dolls that fit her perfectly until she gained enough weight to wear infant items.

      I was born a month early and weighed about 4 lbs (which is big compared to some of the preemies today), now I'm 100 lbs overweight. Lol My mother would cry because nothing fit me, they had to use one of my father's handkerchiefs as a diaper; they actually thought I wasn't going to make it, that's why I'm named after St. Jude (hopeless cases).

      I have twins too and I loved looking at this lens!! My girl/boy twins are 12 years old now but my daughte was 4 lbs 2 oz when she was born and I remember the first day that I walked into the NICU and they had preemie clothes on her! It was such a wonderful feeling!!

      Adorable, I love this lens. Did I mention it's adorable? I've had so many acquaintances who've had preemies and finding items to fit is quite a journey. Hopefully your article is found and loved. Blessings.

      This is great to share with other moms. A friend of mine had to deal with the same problem and it's not easy to find preemie clothes I found out.

      Those peapod outfits crack me up. :) I'd like to link to this lens from my "For Moms of Premies Blog", about which I just put together my first lens today.

      How times have changed! When I had my premmie (that's what we call premature infants in Australia) many years ago - I dressed her in dolls clothes. Everything else was too big! This is a lovely resource

      Great page. Unfortunately, the need to shop for preemies is such a last-minute one. How nice to have online choices.

      I had never thought about christening outfits for a preemie. Thank you for putting that sized one here, that will be so helpful for parents! If you get a chance have a look at my christening presents blog.

      This seems like it would be a great resource. It's not like new parents expect to have premmies. They end up with all this clothing for gifts but can't use any of it initially. Good selection.
