Rompers and diapers for premature infants

Premature babies always need very special products and clothing sizes. Premature babies, for example, who are allowed to go home with a weight of 2.5 kg, often wear size 42/46.

Mature newborns usually wear size 50 and larger. Baby clothes for premature babies are tiny and more complicated to obtain than clothes for mature newborns.

Diapers for premature babies
At the clinic, your baby will be provided with all the clothes and care products he or she needs – including diapers, pacifiers or teats. Suitable diapers for premature babies are important because if the diaper is too big, it will leak at the side. Some diaper manufacturers have therefore developed special diapers for premature babies, e.g. Pampers New Baby Micro: 1 – 2.5 kg or Moltex 1-3 kg, which are especially suitable for the very small premature babies. However, they are comparatively expensive and you have to order them at the pharmacy or on the Internet. Many parents – and sometimes also the nurses in the clinics – therefore use size 1 “Newborn” (e.g. from Pampers, Fixies or DM). If you turn the top edge over, you can already use it for premature babies weighing 2000 to 2500 grams. Since babies at this age are not yet so mobile, these diapers will still fit most babies well.

Premature baby clothes in size 32 – 56
The sizes for children’s clothing are based on body size. A baby born on time will initially wear size 50 to 62, depending on how strong it is. When your premature baby is discharged from the clinic, the baby is probably still so small that the normal sizes for newborns such as 50 or 56 will not fit him/her well.

There are now manufacturers who specialize in the very special needs and body sizes of premature babies. Clothing for premature babies is best found on the Internet or in good specialist shops. The tiny rompers, bodysuits and jackets not only look cute, but with their soft, natural and untreated fabrics they also ensure that the sensitive skin of premature babies is not irritated or contaminated with harmful substances. In addition, they are cut so that they are particularly easy to put on and take off. Bodies with press studs diagonally from the feet to the shoulder are practical.
In order to have the right size at home, it is best to get the premature baby clothes a few days before discharge. Important: Make sure to wash the clothes before putting them on for the first time.

Initial clothing for premature infants
For the beginning a small number of bodies, rompers, jackets and a sleeping bag is enough. Premature baby clothes are often more expensive than standard size baby clothes. Because premature babies grow very fast, parents have to get the next size after about four weeks.

Premature babies enjoy it especially when wrapped in a blanket or wrapped in a blanket. This gives them the feeling of support and security like in the womb and also saves them from having to put on the annoying jacket. There are special wraps with caps and slits for strapping them into the child seat. However, your baby should only ever sleep in a sleeping bag. Although premature babies cool down particularly quickly, you should still make sure that you do not pack your baby too warm. If it feels pleasantly warm in the neck, but not sweaty and damp, it is just right. Socks or gloves will help to prevent cold feet and hands.
