IOCC Baby Kits

Jennifer Hock was the source of this idea of something to do in memory of your lost baby.

The International Orthodox Christian Charities organization (IOCC) needs people to put together emergency kits including emergency baby kits. This is from their site:

To assemble a Baby Kit you will need
  • 2 shirts
  • 2 gowns or sleepers
  • 2 receiving blankets
  • 6 cloth diapers
  • 2 diaper pins
  • 1 sweater or sweatshirt
  • 2 washcloths
Wrap items inside one of the receiving blankets and
secure with diaper pins.
You then box this, label it, and mail it to their headquarters in Maryland.

I know that picking out baby things can be heart-wrenching if your loss is very fresh. Don't put yourself through this. If you feel that you are able, this is a nice thing to do as a family, particularly with your surviving children. Read Jennifer's post to see how they did this as a family to commemorate the memory of their lost baby.
