    My friend just had her baby... normally this would be a joyous occasion but lil Ricky is only 24 weeks along

    she is located in the little backwards province of Newfoundland [​IMG]

    they have everything medically that any major urban center would.. but when it comes to supplies...clothing, soothers/pacifiers all that stuff is wee wee in size and they simply dont have a demand for it so its hard to get down there...

    can anyone think of a store in the USA (Buffalo mainly) that carried these special items?

    eta: the clothing we are looking for is the outfits that has the lead openings on them so baby can get dressed but still have access for the monitors and stuff

    Quote:so far so good... a few breathing issues but they changed his vent today and that seemed to help matters...

    he is less then a week old and has had a blood transfusion already

    Buffalo has to have a Moms of Multiples, they are FANTASTIC on tiny clothes and clothes with openings for leads. My twins are already over the micropremie size you need, so I don't have anything.

    Also, I am not Christian, but they seem good hearted, even if I don't agree with them - but the TLC family with 19 kids, the new baby was very early. They might be willing to offer advice.
