Every baby deserves the best possible start. However, things don’t always go as planned. The Care+Wear x March of Dimes NICU Onesie addresses both baby’s comfort and clinical function in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU), particularly for the 1 in 10 babies born prematurely each year in the U.S. and millions more around the world.
We worked hand-in-hand with families, designers and health care professionals to create an innovative solution. Designed to provide access and warmth, the Care+Wear x March of Dimes NICU Onesie allows for the baby to stay connected to vital lines and machinery while wearing the outfit. The outfit features unique tie and snap openings that provide clinically compliant access without disrupting the baby. The diagonal body opening ensures no irritation to the belly button while its fold over cuffs on both hands and feet keeps the baby warm and comfortable at all times.
As a leader in maternal and child health, March of Dimes fights for the health of all moms and babies. Ten percent of the net sales of the onesie will be donated to help them change lives and build a brighter future for us all.
