Moms-to-be are relieved when they reach the point in their pregnancy at which their baby will be able to survive if it it is born too soon. 24 weeks is that cut-off point, and while it’s glorious news to mothers that their little one will survive, being born prematurely requires much treatment and doctor intervention as well as an extended stay in the aneonatal intensive care unit. It’s our philosophy that just because these babies may need more care than other babies and are not “normal” sized doesn’t mean they don’t deserve everything bigger babies do. Which brings us to our newest project: making hats for 24 week old babies. Unfathomably tiny and with tiny stitched shapes like hearts in the center, we hope these hats will bring a little piece of sunshine to a long day in the intensive care unit.
The Mercy Home for Boys and Girls is having its fifth annual spring gala! The night will be filled with dining, dancing, and silent auctions all in the jaw-dropping setting of the Trump International Hotel & Tower. All proceeds from the event will support the Legacy of Learning campaign, which gives resources to the Mercy Home with the goal of educating children in need. Don’t miss out on the fun–buy your tickets before April 5th for a cheaper deal!
We’d like to personally invite you to this fabulous Mercy Home for Boys & Girls event. As always, all of the proceeds received from this event go to the organization and we would LOVE your Support!! Hope to see you there!!
We hope you’re having a fabulous start to Fall. We wanted to share some details with you about a charming and inspiring new book called, Fly Danny, Fly by two Chicago suburbs-based authors Chip Gilbertson and Gina Restivo! A part of the book’s proceeds go to The Danny Did Foundation, a foundation dedicated to preventing Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) that was created after the tragic death of four year old Danny Stanton who died in his sleep. As you know, giving back is central to the BabyDoll’s Team and reading this book is a great reminder of doing so.
Fly Danny, Fly follows the life of a young boy named Danny who sees a flying pig that nobody else can see. The book is about embracing oneself with one’s unique perception and about how we all should live life to the fullest. It’s a great way to teach kids about not letting their creative energy be stifled by anybody and about staying true to themselves while respecting the unique characteristics and vision of others. The authors manage to write in a lighthearted manner yet deeply moves us at the same time. We’re not afraid to admit we teared up a little at the end! This book is a must-have for you and your little ones.
Hello Beautiful Dolls! This week we are going to take a moment to reflect on one of the most important reasons we work so hard at BabyDolls Boutique – to give back to local Chicago charities.
Recently the boutiques owner, Vanessa Rodriquez, toured The Mercy Home for Boys and Girls campus which reaffirmed her continued support in their amazing program.
The Mercy Home for Boys and Girls was started in 1887 in order assist at risk youth in Chicago. The Mercy Home provides programs and solutions for children in need, ranging from those who live at Mercy Homes full time residential campus, to those who participate in their after care programs and children in need of quality time with a positive role model.
The Mercy Home for Boys and Girls‘ Mission is to save young lives by providing a safe, nurturing home, opportunity for an excellent education and means for personal growth.
Please take a moment to visit Mercy Home’s website so you can see for yourself just how Mercy Home touches the lives of many in Chicago. Remember Dolls – it is “IN” to give and a little goes a long way!!
One of our greatest satisfactions here at BabyDolls Boutique is giving back to the community and to those less fortunate. Who better to give back to than itty-bitty babies! That is why we were pleased to be a part of WubbaNub’s donation to Northwestern Hospital. The WubbaNub pacifiers go to NICU and Neo-natal units.
These pacifiers are no ordinary paci’s. What makes them different is the small plush toy attached to the only “soothie” used in hospitals. With the toy attached, a baby will feel comforted when the cute stuffed animal is lying gently on its chest. This also makes a baby less likely to spit out the paci.
At BabyDolls, you can choose from a ton of cute little animals! Giraffes, elephants, monkeys, horses, dogs, bears- oh my! You and your baby will both enjoy the comfort of this exceptional ”soothie.”

Remember, dolls- It’s IN to give!
Over the weekend, the BabyDolls team took part in the 32nd annual Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes. Along with thousands of other people, we walked up and down the beautiful Montrose Beach to help raise money for diabetes research. It was a great experience being a part of such an important cause. Approximately 24 million people suffer from diabetes and 15,000 children are diagnosed every year. It is a disease that effects someone for the rest of their lives. It’s crucial to help out any way we can. If you would like to find out more about the research that is done, or would like to get involved and donate, please visit www.jdrf.org.
