Pretty Photos Of The Tiniest N.I.C.U Babies All Dressed Up For Christmas

These festive little cuties are sure to make you smile. Hᴏsᴘɪᴛᴀʟs across the country are helping families get in the holiday spirit with festive Christmas photos of their littlest ᴘᴀᴛɪᴇɴᴛs.

In the ɴᴇᴏɴᴀᴛᴀʟ ɪɴᴛᴇɴsɪᴠᴇ ᴄᴀʀᴇ ᴜɴɪᴛ (N.I.C.U) at Children’s Hᴏsᴘɪᴛᴀʟ Colorado, nurses dressed resident babies in reindeer, polar bear and snowman hats. The annual holiday photo event happens thanks to the Hᴏsᴘɪᴛᴀʟ’s “Sunshine Committee,” a group of N.I.C.U nurses and support staff who help families celebrate milestones and feel more at home during the holidays while their little ones are in the N.I.C.U.

Volunteers sewed the special infant hats, and nurse Lillian Postma made the blankets. Too cute not to smile.

This little one is taking the Polar Express to our hearts. In Florida, Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare’s N.I.C.U nurses dressed the babies in “ugly” holiday sweaters this year.

The Hᴏsᴘɪᴛᴀʟ shared a post to Facebook with all the holiday cuteness, thanking the staff for creating the tiny sweaters.

“There’s snow way we would miss our favorite holiday tradition! This year, our N.I.C.U babies are sleigh-ing it in their ugly Christmas sweaters,” the caption reads alongside a collection of swoon-worthy photos.

Having a baby in the N.I.C.U can be unexpected and challenging for families, making the holidays feel ʟᴇss ᴍᴇʀʀʏ,” Heather Dahmer, a registered nurse and director of children’s services at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, told  . “Bringing the festive fun to these little ones and their parents through this annual tradition is just one of the many ways our team works to normalize the N.I.C.U environment and make an uncertain time special for families.”

Tiny babies across the country are enjoying the spirit of the season thanks to creative Hᴏsᴘɪᴛᴀʟ workers.

Christmas came early for babies in Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare’s N.I.C.U, where creative staff members helped design holiday sweaters. Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare.

Dahmer continued, “Our crafty N.I.C.U night team created the sweaters and our day team helped bring their visions to life.”

The team made sure to put a smart disclaimer on their social post.
