What A Week!

Where did this week go?
We have had a very busy week at Preemie Proud this week.  We have fulfilled several custom orders & a few of them were larger than usual.

Our micro preemie inventory has taken a hit this week as well.  You may notice this weekend that we have no micro preemie short sleeve diaper shirts in stock.  We apologize and will be working to restock a few of these next week.  Also, our micro preemie hat selection has been depleted this weekend.  We will begin Monday morning working to replace those as well. 

Next week will be even busier as we strive to restock our inventory and provide as many options for our preemie parents as possible. 

Keep watching!  Micro preemie Halloween costumes and preemie costumes are on their way!

They Are Growing Up!

So many of the wonderful families, that we have had to pleasure to get acquainted with, still update us on their babies even months after leaving the NICU.  What a blessing!  Each of their updates help to provide inspiration and hope to other parents that are currently experiencing their own journey of prematurity. 

A special thank you to all of our wonderful preemie families for sharing your stories and your little miracles with us!  You are awesome!

We Are Preemie Proud!!

Last night was amazing!  
We watched as our former 29 week micro preemie danced her heart out in front of an auditorium full of people.

Yes, that's right!  Our daughter, Braleigh, performed in the annual dance recital for her dance studio last night.  She performed in three dances during the matinee recital and two dances during the evening performance.  As her parents, we are so proud of her and how far she has come since birth.  She is a far cry from the premature baby who came 11 weeks early, but she was right on time last night!!!

Braleigh also was selected to be a member of the 2010-2011 Dazzler Competition Team.  She has competed in several competitions this season and has worked very hard.  Again, we are so very proud of her and all she has accomplished this year and over the past 7 yrs.  She has come so far!!

Way to go baby girl! You are awesome and we love you with all our hearts!

We are forever "Preemie Proud!"

Another School Year Almost Gone For Our Former Preemie

Can you believe that the end of the school year is upon us.  There are only 5 1/2 school days left in the 2010-2011 school term for our daughter Braleigh who is a former 29 weeker.  How time flies!

Braleigh has had a marvelous first grade year and truly loves her teacher.  The last day of school will be hard on our daughter as she will miss her friends and familiar faces. What a year it has been!  Not only has Braleigh succeeded in her first grade curriculum, she was also tested for the Talented and Gifted Program.  She scored high enough on her testing to be accepted into the TAG program while in the first grade.  Part of her year was spent with pull out services as she went to a third grade class room for reading.  Braleigh is quite the reader!  She has already scored over 206 AR points this year for the Accelerated Reader Program and has loved every minute of it!!!  Not only does she read, but she reads well above grade level.  Our former 29 weeker is reading on at least a 4th grade level!!

As many of you may have been told by your doctors and neonatologist, preemie babies do often have speech delays, physical delays, or learning disabilities. This is statistically true.  However,  NOT all of them do!  Set obtainable, high expectations for your child.  Work with them when they are small and give them every opportunity you can for them to succeed.  Again, NOT all preemies will come away from their prematurity with a host of problems.  There is hope!!!

March for Babies

Tomorrow, April 30th, our Preemie Proud Team will be walking in our local March of Dimes: March for Babies Walk in honor of all the premature babies in our lives. 

Our team will have 3 former preemies walking with us.  These are (my daughter) Braleigh, (my sister) Ashley, and a cousin.  We are also walking in memory of "Angel" twin boy cousins born at 21 wks.  Prematurity as effected our family in many ways over the years.  I told our local March of Dimes coordinator that luckily we have had many success stories and only a heartache or two.  
So if you are in our local area and want to walk with us, contact me at .  Our team is about 30 members strong, but we will be more than willing to welcome more people!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  
(Wish us luck!   It's a 6 mile walk!)

Preemie Prayer Request

We received this prayer request today and I would like to share it with you.  Please remember these babies when you pray and their parents.

"Please pray for our little guys. Kellen was just born at 23 weeks and Reis is still in the womb. Please pray that they can survive and that they are healthy. We believe in miracles and the power of prayer and we know God has complete control over this situation and his will be done. With God all things are possible and I fully believe this will be another testimony of God power! In Jesus Holy name we pray. Amen " - Shiloe and Amanda

Catching Up!

Well, let me start by saying this year has already started out as a blur.  It is already the middle of February and each day seems to go faster and faster.  Where does time go?

For all of our preemies, their days are spent in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit until they are strong enough to make the transition to life at home with their families.  I am so happy to report that we have already had a couple of premature babies graduate from the NICU this year and they are thriving at home.  As for the other wonderful babies that we have the pleasure to hear about and follow their progress, they are making great strides each day. Sometimes there are "little bumps in the road" so to speak...but that is all part of being born too early and having to struggle to each day to learn what some folks say are the "normal things".  Examples:  breathing, regulating body temperature, bottling and nippling....the list goes on and on for our sweet preemies.  So in short, we are so very proud of our Preemie Proud babies!  Way to go! Keep Growing!

For the parents of premature infants in the Neonatal Unit, these last couple of months and weeks have been both emotionally and physically stressful.  Several of our parents have had to return to work and find themselves trying to balance family, work, and visits to the NICU all at the same time.  We are constantly thinking of our parents and trying to support them on our Preemie Proud Facebook Page.   Luckily, some of our parents have spouses and other family members that are currently helping to balance out their life with a preemie.  Even the moms that recently have taken their pre-term babies home find themselves doing the balancing act - work, other children, household chores, and now their preemie's care.  Sometimes a NICU grad goes home with medical equipment, a list of medications, and many doctor appointments to keep.  To all of our new parents that find themselves in this position, please know that you are not alone and there are other parents that are going through the same preemie journey as you.  Also, there are many of us that have been through the NICU journey ourselves and would love to help support you through your preemie experience.  Come join us on Facebook and connect with other preemie families!

Business News - As some of you already know, after the first of the year, Preemie Proud moved full-time to our commercial location.  This allows us to have more room for production of premature baby clothing and other great preemie accessories.  As with any move, there are still "kinks" to be worked out and we are dealing with them as they come up.  So far, the move has been a wonderful experience.  We have been able to up our production rate and have several new items to be listed on our website .  Some of you have asked if we have a storefront now.  Unfortunately, we do not have a store front at this time that is open to the public.  We are using our commercial location for production purposes only. can still find our wonderful micro preemie clothes and preemie clothing online at our website Preemie Proud .  Be sure to look at the daily featured items located on our homepage.

Way to go babies!

I am so proud of all of our preemie babies!  As the new year begins, I hear of all the amazing babies that are fighting so hard each day.  Every milestone and all progress is such an amazing thing that should be celebrated.  On our Facebook page, I create milestone graphics for our babies as they hit a new stage in their NICU journey such as weight gain, off the vent, moving to an open crib, etc.  Our goal is to support each baby and their family as they make their way through the NICU- one step at a time.  We celebrate each tiny step as they go! Join our facebook family and help us celebrate!
