Teeny Tears Seeks to Comfort Parents

“A person is a person, no matter how small.” That’s a quote from Dr. Seuss.

There is a service organization of volunteers that sews tiny flannel bereavement diapers, and provides them to hospitals and bereavement support organizations at no charge for families that have suffered the loss of a preemie or micropreemie child through stillbirth or Neonatal Intensive Care Unit loss. Their organization is called Teeny Tears.

When a baby is born prematurely or still born, families have a hard time finding any kind of clothing for the small baby to be buried in as they are so small. Teeny Tears provides two matching diapers to each family, one for the baby in which to be buried in and one for the family to keep in a memory box. The diapers are very small, fitting in the palm of a hand, but they give families a lasting momento of their precious baby and provides comfort of something tangible that the family can keep.

The death of a child is the most tragic that can happen to a family. Teeny Tears helps the parents cope with the grief of their child.  Anyone interested in helping with the Teeny Tear diaper project can go to the organization’s website.
