I've heard of custom made preemie dolls that are made to your LO's birth weight and length. I think this could be a really neat memory of our beginning. Do you have any suggestions of where to get them or any experience with sellers? Thanks!
Here's a couple of links I found using Google:
here's a picture of DD with her doll on her first birthday:
I love the doll. Definitely worth the money.
I second www.remembermepreemie.com. Great work, super friendly seller and easy to work with. We got really fast service even just before a holiday period. We love our doll!!
We went with real weight, but in retrospect I kind of wish I had asked for feels right weight. It really is amazing how much lighter I remember her feeling. I guess they really do support some of their own weight, even when they are that little. When I show the doll to people I always find myself explaining that this is her "dead weight", and that she felt much lighter.
I still love the doll ... even if I wish she felt "right".
