At the end of October one of my friends became the proud dad to twins and he posted proud dad photos on Facebook of his gorgeous daughters. The thing I remember most about his photos, apart from his obvious pride was the fab headwear his girls often wore.
A couple of months on and they still look tiny to me, but are infact just reaching newborn sized clothing. They're continuing to model some fabulous outfits, and of course Dad is just as proud. Apart from marvelling at the wonder of those photos, I didn't think much more of it. That is until Sunrise Senior Living got in touch and introduced their Knit for Winter campaign for this year, which is supporting First Touch premature babies.
It was then I realised the significance of the fabulous headwear I'd seen, as along with the elderly "preemie" babies are among those most at risk of hypothermia as they don't have the body fat to help them maintain their own body temperatures. So incubators and layers, including fabulous hats help them keep them strong.
This is a collaborative post with Sunrise Senior Living who've provided the inspiration and the materials to get me started.
