Premature babies are one of the most precious things to witness in life. They are fighters and thrivers, and the smallest of improvements are celebrated with joy and relief. It is a challenging time for parents, the days just blur into weeks as your life becomes a small bubble as your sole focus is this special little life.
In the haze of new parenthood, doctors, medications and wires, important milestones are often missed or not captured. Our goal with these plaques is to give you those moments back, to have something tangible to look back on, and ensure that those small but very significant moments in baby's early life can be captured and treasured forever.
We are delighted to offer these Milestone Plaques for parents of premmies. The plaques are made from 3mm cedar wood which is strong but lightweight, and sanded by hand to give an incredible smooth finish. The hexagonal shape brings a unique touch to your milestone pictures! Measuring 10cm across and the corners are gently rounded to ensure no scratches for little hands and people.
