I was recently having a conversation with my daughter about all the leg warmers we carry here at the Preemie Store. She told me about talking with a customer on chat that was looking for pants that would work for her little preemie in the NICU. Melissa proceeded to tell her about the leg warmers we carry and the benefits of them in the NICU. This prompted her to suggest we write a blog post and share this with everyone, because sometimes when we see the name leg warmers we may just think of the '80s when they were first popular. Some of you may only remember that in terms of dressing up in '80s costumes! I kind of wish I was that young!
So, why would you want to consider purchasing leg warmers for your preemie?
First, they work great to keep little legs warm! I would like to immediately insert that I believe they can also be used on arms as well. There are times when short sleeve or sleeveless garments work great in the NICU. Let's say your preemie has an IV on one arm, this is when the other arm may be able to benefit from a leg warmer. No matter if you are using them for legs or arms they do provide extra warmth that is very important to keep little one's temperatures up.
