This project is for NICU families.
One of the first things parents get to do when they find out they're pregnant is pick out their baby's first outfit. They get to go to Target or Buy Buy Baby, breeze through all the newborn clothes and pick the perfect one!
Well, when you have to go to the NICU, unexpected or not, that isn't always an option. Due to all the wires, IV lines and tubes, regular clothes don't always work.
At Twenty-Five and Four, we put the power back in the parents hands. You get to pick out the style you like and material that defines you and your family. Whether it's cute little butterflies or big trucks and airplanes, you as the parent get to pick out your little one's outfit. Just like you were supposed to be able to do in the first place.
This is for you.
Twenty-Five and Four was created in honor of our son, W, who was born at 25 weeks and 4 days.
He was just 1 pound 12 ounces and spent 110 days in the NICU before we were able to bring him home. W is a remarkable little boy with more spirit in him than anyone we've ever met. Nothing will stop his fighting personality and we are blessed to be his parents!
When we were in the NICU, I couldn't find any micro-preemie clothes small enough for W. The few I did find were so expensive. I enlisted my mom to see if she would be able to make something small enough for him to wear. Of course, she had a doll size shirt in the mail within a day!
Twenty-Five and Four was created when I realized that I wasn't the only one who was torn apart that I wasn't able to dress my baby.
We would visit our NICU often after we had been discharged to see our nurses and doctors and show off our miracle man. We'd also talk to the parents, and it became apparent that I needed to do something about these micro-preemie shirts that everyone wanted...and needed.
At Twenty-Five and Four, we strive to make quality shirts for the tiniest of babies. We want parents of these micro-miracles to be able to experience the joy of being able to put a shirt on your baby!
100% of donations are used to make sure every baby has a shirt that fits. We want to make sure every parent gets the joy of dressing their little ones, no matter how small!
