NICU Packs

Project Description

ICU Baby provides Preemie Packs and NICU Packs to each qualifying family in the NICUs of Baptist Health’s South Miami Hospital and Holtz Children’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial as part of our NICU Pack Program. The Packs are carrying totes for trips back-and-forth from the family’s home to the NICU. It is filled with various items that will facilitate the family’s visit with their baby.

The items in the Preemie Pack and NICU Pack vary from hospital-to-hospital to meet the needs of each specific population and the hospitals’ guidelines.  Some of the items included in all Packs are:

  • a journal for parents to keep track of their baby’s daily progress,
  • laundry bags for transport of the baby’s clean and dirty clothes,
  • a water bottle to encourage breast milk production,
  • crib cards to document the baby’s NICU milestones, and
  • a list of commonly used NICU medical terms.

Preemie Packs are delivered to babies born under 32 weeks gestational age and NICU Packs are delivered to babies whose stay in the NICU is estimated to be greater than four weeks.
