Long Stay Milestone Kit
Hand to Hold’s NICU Milestone Bead Program was created to celebrate each special step in a family’s NICU journey from birth to home. As a baby in your NICU reaches each milestone, you can present a bead to the baby’s family. The collection of beads strung together on a beautiful necklace serves as a reminder to the family about their unique journey and a reflection of their baby's progress towards home. A small card accompanies each bead where the family can record the date of that specific milestone reached.
The Long Stay Milestone Kit includes a necklace with a stork charm, keepsake card and gift packaging to commemorate baby's birth. This kit also includes milestone beads and keepsake cards for each of the following milestones: First Hold, First Feeding, First Diaper Change, First Bath, Sibling Visit, Open Crib, First Clothes, Kangaroo Care, Room Air, Going Home.
The Long Stay Milestone Kit also features our Week by Week and Birthstone Beads. As colorful and varied as a NICU journey, Week by Week beads celebrate each week of progress during a baby's stay in the NICU and are provided in quantities to reflect the average number of weeks for a longer NICU stay. Birthstone Beads are a sparkling celebration of the month that baby is born and are provided in quantities to reflect an estimated number of births in each month. This package contains materials for 25 kits. NOTE: The beads you receive may vary slightly from the images below.
