Zutano is all about prints. Fun, zany, inspired, sweet, sassy--they've got it all. And the best part? They have THE BEST sizes for wee ones. My first daughter was born weighing 6 pounds. I was so grateful for the appropriately-sized newborn outfits from Zutano.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), 12% of all babies born in the US in 2003 (499,008 infants) were born prematurely. That's a lot of tiny tots. Whatever the cause, these babies are swimming in standard 0-3 month outfits.

Zutano has always been thrilled with the honor of so many parents choosing Zutano as the first garments their child wears. The folks at Zutano say, "Why should parents who have smaller babies not be able to enjoy all those great Zutano patterns!"

Zutano's founder and designer, Uli focuses on designing size-appropriate pieces for the ITZY BITZY line. Most have 'easy access' points (as many premature babies actually have various medical devices or IV's etc.) They come in 2 sizes now, newborn and 0-3 months. Newborn will fit babies as small as 4 lbs.

Zutano outfits often become keepsakes. Parents develop a special connection to this time period, as perhaps it is a time when they've worried, spent a lot of time to nurture their baby to a safe, healthy space. Many parents report saving Zutano pieces in memory boxes. According to Uli, it is truly rewarding to serve this delicate market. Pick up Zutanogowns, print footies, and caps on Amazon.com.
