    Default Wanting some premmie beanies knitted please

    Hi there,

    I’m (nearly) 27w and looking to have a premmie baby. I need some beanies for her, I know the hospital will have some but I would really love her first beanies to be the ones I gave her and can then bring home.

    Just after 2 beanies suitable for a prem to newborn size, for a baby girl.

    Thank you

    I don't knit but I wanted to wish you well. I've not had a premmie baby but I imagine it must be hard and scary. Best of luck to you and your little one. xx

    I don't knit but have had a premmie baby. Just want to let you know that the hospital didn't care if we took some clothes home as mementos.

    Hi OP, I’m sorry but it’s against forum rules to exchange money for goods. I deleted some text in your post.

    My DS was prem - I would contact the hospital you will be delivering at to see if their gift shop stocks premmie beanies. I’m pretty sure the hospital I delivered at did.

    Also the NICU would relieve constant donations of beanies from knitters. I’m sure they’d know a lovely person who would happily make you some

    One of my twins ended up in Special Care and they allowed us to keep the teeny tiny beanie they gave her. Same with the outfit they put her in.

    DD was given a beanie or 2 in NICU and they came home with us. It’s also worth knowing that while on cpap bub will have a little protective beanie on to protect their head so can’t wear another beanie.

    Not knitted but if you did want your own purebaby have tiny beanies. They are cute and unisex.

    ETA: we used mostly hospital clothes and the like because when you bring your own it can easy get mixed with the hospital stuff and lost. Might be different in a small hospital.

    Thank you everyone. I’m sorry for breaking forum rules!! I’ve had 2 premmie babies at the hospital I’m delivering at already and I didn’t get to keep any beanies or clothes . I will have a look on Facebook for some local knitters. Thanks everyone
