Premature births are on the rise. About half a million preemie babies have been born over the last 20 years and that's up to about 12% of births a year. Preemies come with a whole group of issues that parents of non-preemie babies don't face. Where to get the smallest clothing, worries about your babies health being more compromised, and emotional support to name a few. If you're the parent of a tiny preemie the following resources can help you to keep a hold on your life during the first few months. The Preemie Store: Offers pint sized clothing and they include a great return policy -- if it's unworn and unwashed it's returnable. Preemies.Org: Offers preemie chat, mailing list, support, and other resources that are invaluable to parents of preemies. Nurture Place: Offers clothing along with tips and tricks for what the smallest preemies need both care and clothing wise. My Tiny Hands: This site has great little signs that tell people to wash up before touching the baby. Since preemies are vulnerable to germs more so than an average sized baby these handy signs are a good reminder to people who can't resist a little one.
