Hi there....

I'll be delivering this baby in 6 days!! I will be 37wks so it doesn't look like I will be needing all the preemie clothes that was worn by my first born. I would love to donate them, as they are all still in great condition. Any ideas? My first thought was to take it to the NICU, but I'm not sure if they would take them.

I'd call your NICU to see if they can use them. Wait till after you deliver though because you may need them for a few weeks. Congrats on making it to 37weeks!

I kept some of my sons' clothes, but only because I'm sentimental. Other things I donated to the NICU. Our NICU said they can always use new clothes, however they need to be easy on/off, so sleepers with snaps were the only things they really took.. or hats and booties. over the head shirts or pants they didn't want. Always good to check with your NICU and see if they need anything! Otherwise, I'd post them on Craigslist or other local classifieds website as a bundle and see if anyone else can use them.

So excited you made it to full term!!! We gave ours away to a friend in the NICU and told them to pass them onto some else when he outgrew them.

If the NICU won't take them, typically a local mothers group or mothers of multiples group runs a preemie closet.

I would call the nicu see if they need them if not, if you go to church you could see if a local family needs them through church. Also Craigslist free section. I saved all our clothes because I already had to preemies, so I saved them just to be safe.

Donating is a good idea never really thought of that. All my premie clothes I saved and gave to my daughter they were prefect for doll clothes just the right size.

I dont know where you are from but the Nicu I work at loves to get clothes for their preemies. contact the hospital where you will give birth and ask them!

Put them in the parents room in the nicu and put a note telling people to take what they want.
