At 6 days old, Amelia was diagnosed with Cystic
Fibrosis. Thanks to the help of her wonderful doctors at
Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, she is doing great! It
is very important however that Amelia stay healthy to keep her
lungs in good shape. We do lots of breathing treatment and
chest physiotherapy to help fight away the bad germs. The
most important way that we keep infection away though, is
through clean hands and hand washing. We have a healthy
little ones sign on our front door reminding all they must wash
and sanitize their hands when they come into our house. We
also have the sign for her car seat and stroller letting
stranger know it is not OK to touch her. I truly believe
this signs have helped in the fight to keep our little one
healthy. Thank you so much for these!
We just ordered a sign from Healthy Little Ones
for Bentley's car seat! And can not thank you enough for the
great work! It has really helped so much! We don't have
anymore strangers touching Bentley which is helping him stay
healthy:)! It's such a great idea and I really recommended
them to any new moms!!
I am the Executive Director of Breath of Hope,
a nonprofit organization that supports families and friends affected
by the birth defect, congenital diaphragmatic hernia. I love these
signs and our parents with survivors will too. These children, like
preemies should not be exposed to germs. We also send families who
bring their babies home the links you recommend - great for therapy
from the NICU to home! I will definitely add your link to our
website for a resource!
Brin was born prematurely at 29 weeks weighing
1 lb 15 oz. She was discharged from the hospital at 7 weeks
weighing almost 4 lbs. We were having problems with strangers
coming up and trying to touch her or even the items in her car seat
such as her Bundleme. Since we have gotten the sign we have
not had that problem once and I feel it actually educates people
because it is a conversation starter and people come to realize they
can't just touch a baby because they don't know if there are health
issues and they could get that baby sick.
Thank you for your
wonderful signs! ~ Terri
I wanted to thank you for this site.
My son is not a preemie, he is 19 months old, he has an immune
disease and people want to touch him all the time. I have
been looking for a sign for his stroller for months and just ran
across your website. I ordered 2 of your signs one for
each stroller and just safety pinned it to them and they work

I ordered your "Look Flower" sign awhile ago
and it is like some sort of magic shield! Since the day we've
put it on her carseat (and now on her stroller!) not one person
(that we didn't know) has touched our daughter!
gotten so many comments on it (and found that any negative ones
are usually the people that want to touch her!), and referred a
few other new moms to your site as well!
Thanks so much
for saving me the awkwardness of having to shoo away dirty hands
every time we go out!
I've been so busy I hadn't gotten a chance
to write yet, but we received the package and I LOVE everything!
It is so cute. I've given my mom the information about the
site to pass onto her preschool and afterschool parents. She
loves the things I got her for her preschool, and my son loves his

As a parent of a preemie, I have to tell you how fabulous I think
you guys are! My little one is 6 months old now, but she was born
at 27 weeks weighing 1 pound 2 ounces. We were nervous wrecks when
she came home, and whenever we had to take her out, we were even
more nervous! Why does everyone just have to touch the baby? You
feel so awkward and uncomfortable telling people not to! I found
an ad for your website in Preemie Magazine, and I sent a link to
the site to all of my Preemie Parent friends, and I am posting it
on my on line Preemie support group! I just wanted to thank you
for this great service!
~ Staci and Lena W.
Thank you for offering such wonderful, tactful
and cute ways to let ppl know your intentions. I think you're
providing a wonderful service and I'm going to post your addy on my
birth club on babycenter.com (February 2005 babies).

The medicine chart comes in
handy because I was constantly asking my 11-year old if he took his
medicine at breakfast and dinner. Now I have the medicine
chart on the fridge and I just have to see if he checked it for that
time of day. He likes it too because I'm not "bugging" him all
~ Wendy D.
I have a preemie. What a
great way to say "don't touch" without hurting anyone's feelings and
making a situation awkward. Thanks.
