my son was born 24 weeks of gestation he was born at halifax hospital in daytona now he is at wolfsons childrens hospital in jacksonville fl he was 1lb 8 oz at birth born nov 20 due march 12 2013 in need of preemie clothes
Each hospital is different but my daughter wore 1 preemie outfit once so I could take a picture to show to the friend who gave us the outfit. She was waering just a diaper and maybe a t shirt in the isolette and when skin to skin; it wasn't until she was in an open crib (about 1 month before her due date, or maybe later) that we started dressing her and by that point she was already fitting well in to newborn clothes. But, I know each hospital is different
Here's a link to where you can buy one:
Agreed that there is very little for micropreemies but they are out there. And they are usually made to snap on around wires and such. I can't recall the sites, but doing a search for "NICU clothing" or "isolette clothes" should bring some up. Mine didn't wear any clothes until he was in the step-down nursery when it was less of an issue, but he was still only 4lbs. At that point, the preemie clothes seemed to be okay.
