A monarch butterfly, a pair of Twinkies, a pirate, a box of popcorn, and a scuba diver were just some of the adorable characters who celebrated Halloween in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital. The nurses made the majority of the costumes for the tiny babies who dressed up for the event.
Spending time in the NICU can be stressful for families, so nurses try to make things as normal as possible for families.
“Holidays can be especially hard for families,” said Katie Clower, RN, Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital. “Providing costumes for our babies gives families a way to still celebrate this special occasion.”
The nurses say dressing the babies up for Halloween is just one way they can help families make happy memories during their stay in the NICU.
