About Preemie Buddy (Doll)
Hi, I’m the Preemie Buddy! I’m made of soft sheepskin material and dressed in a pink or blue layette so that I’m ready to provide companionship and comfort and be a tool for the NICU staff for your newest addition to the family. I’m approximately 7″ tall and weigh 14oz.; I’ll be there to bond with your baby soon after the birth of your preemie.
I can go straight with the baby to the NICU and be placed in the incubator, and Mom and/or Dad can wear the layette next to their skin for a day or two so that their smell can be absorbed in the layette material. I’m more than just a preemie doll—i’m a cuddly friend just like them.
