Having a preemie was something I never had to worry about when it came time to deliverâ€”both of my kids were a week late and required an eviction via a Pitocin drip. A good friend of mine, however, went in to labour over a month early; the end result was a tiny baby girl who weighed in at just over five pounds. â€œSheâ€™s just so small,â€ I remember her telling me a few days later. â€œAnd I donâ€™t have any clothes that fit her.â€
I felt for my friend. There I was, with my nine-pound
butterball baby boy who wore 3-6 month onesies from the get-go, and she was struggling to find sleepers her new daughter wouldn’t swim in. If only Iâ€™d known about Fig Leaf Baby then, I could have pointed her in the right direction!
Fig Leaf Baby is a line of baby clothes that specializes in preemie sizes. Their products are made from 100% Peruvian Prima cotton (they are slated to be made from organic cotton next spring) and colored with organic dyes. Fig Leaf Baby has hats, onesies, leggings and kimono dresses for the preemie set, with bodysuits displaying embroidered catchphrases like Preemie Donna, Early Bird and N.I.C.U. Alumni. They may be smaller, but just like their mamas, even preemies deserve cute, eco-friendlier clothing that fits well!
