Our first ever Mother's Day is finally going ahead in 2020 after Covid shut down our inaugural plans in 2020.
We are doing our inaugural Father's Day Bags in 2020. They will be full of men's luxe toiltetries, snacks, preemie gifts and a Dad book.
2020 NICU Cheer Mother's Day Gift-bags. Sadly this delivery was cancelled due to Covid-19.
Our third annual delivery went out to every cot in three of Melbourne's biggest NICUs on Christmas Day 2019.
Snuggle hearts help parents and baby stay connected when they're separated due to a NICU stay through the power of scent bonding. A parent wears one heart down their top to pick up their scent & the other is placed on, under or near their baby in their NICU cot & they are then swapped back and forth so that parent & baby can always smell each other even when apart.
NICU Cheer now includes a pair of Snuggle Hearts in every gift-bag for families of premature/sick babies so with a total of 250 bags donated to Melbourne's five tertiary level NICUs each year we need a minimum of 2000 hearts to make up1000 pairs + we are in the process of building a supply big enough to donate to hospitals more frequently throughout the year.
The Snuggle Hearts are very simple to make even with the most basic sewing skills and can be done by hand or machine. If you'd like to sew and donate some hearts please click below for the 1 page template ♥️ We also have a private Facebook group just for those sewing Snuggle Hearts for NICU Cheer.
