Premature Fashion

The first month of the girls being in NICU they were just in nappies due to the intensive care cot. The climate was controlled, and very warm replicating the warmth of the womb. Also, the girls were being observed round-the-clock, and clothes would obstruct that. 
 
So when we were told we could start bringing in clothes, it was a big deal. It was a step to normality. Our girls stopped looking like sick babies and just babies. Of course we still had a long way to go when they started wearing clothes it signified progress.

The first clothes I purchased were from Early Baby incubator vests and rompers. These provided easy access for the hospital staff and didn’t disrupt the wires that were still monitoring their breathing.
 
When these became too small, they were wearing vests from the M&S Tiny baby range. These multi-coloured vests were lovely. Organic cotton so super soft and a nice range of colours for girls and boys (pictured above)!
 
The outfits they went home in were from Mothercare (one of my favourites). They were thicker, so were used as outerwear. 
 
All the above would be great gifts or if you’re not sure what to buy if your bundle of joy decides to come early. But I would recommend that you don’t overdo it. The girls had outgrown all the premature clothes I had bought and were gifted within a month of them being home!

From finding out she was going to be a mother of twins, then them being born at 27 weeks (two and a half months early), it was a rollercoaster but sharing the whole experience on platforms such as Make Motherhood Diverse has reminded her that she wasn’t alone despite not feeling included in the mainstream vision of motherhood.
Georgia regularly shares the realities of being a mother of twins on her Instagram page while still craving her own piece of the world. It’s a mixture of meltdowns and giggles and Black British Motherhood in all its glory.

She ran a beauty business providing pamper treatments for private and corporate clients, and has also worked on a multitude of events including influencers book launches for Zoella and Tanya Burr, and brands such as Wilko and Pixi beauty.
