We are here to make your little
preemie baby as comfortable as possible
At Octopus For a Preemie, we aim to provide a crocheted Octopal
to every premature baby in hospitals across New Zealand.
The tentacles of the octopus resemble the umbilical cord.
This reminds the babies of their time in the womb and helps to comfort and soothe.
Our adorable little octopus' or jellyfish will be your little bub's companion
The aim of ‘Octopus For a Preemie NZ’ is to provide a crocheted (or knitted) Octopal to every premature baby in hospitals across the country.
The Octopals are made using very specific materials, 100% 4ply cotton that can be washed at a high temp and made to a very specific size and standard for safety reasons.
Octopals are not toys, they are a comforter and soother for premature babies and we can see the amazing benefits these little Octopals bring to the babies and their families.
