For the very young: premature clothing at Mamarella
About five to ten percent of babies in Germany are born before the end of the 37th week of gestation. They are called premature babies. The earlier they are born, the lower their birth weight and body size compared to babies born mature. A bodysuit and romper in size 50 or even 56, which we usually recommend for the baby's first outfit, can still be much too big for premature babies. But this is not just a visual problem. Clothes that are too big run the risk of not keeping the little ones warm enough because they don't fit properly and slip out of place. In the worst case, a top that is too big or a bodice that is too loose can even slip over the baby's face.
Your baby, especially if he or she was born prematurely, needs clothes that fit him or her properly, keep him or her warm and are safe. That's why you'll find with us beautiful preemie clothes from size 44 (PRE) made of soft organic cotton for extra small babies.
Comfy, cosy & trendy: preemie clothes in neutral beige shades
Our preemie clothes include rompers, trousers, shirts and jackets from size 44, as well as practical clothing sets that make great gifts for preemies and their parents. Our favourites are, for example, the soft baby knit trousers in neutral beige tones with matching tops made from soft, stretchy rib-knit jersey, as well as the matching knitted jackets and hats. All the pieces in this collection harmonise perfectly with each other, so you can mix and match them. In addition to the gender-neutral brown and beige shades, you will also find preemie clothes in delicate pastel shades, for example in pink or mint, as well as in strong navy with and without contrasting design details.
The waistband of the cosy preemie trousers can either be folded up for extra warmth on the tummy, or it can be adjusted with a drawstring. If the trouser legs are still a little too long at the beginning, you can simply roll them up. This way, the trousers will grow with you for a few weeks as your delicate baby grows centimetres and centimetres taller and stronger.
Our preemie shirts either have buttons at the shoulders that widen the neckline, making them easier to put on and take off. Or they have a wrap-around design so you don't have to pull them over your baby's head. This makes changing your baby's clothes child's play. To make sure your baby's head doesn't get cold, you'll also find cute knitted hats to match the different knitted trousers and tops.

Often things happen very quickly and you are not at all prepared for a premature birth. We know from our own experience that it is not so easy to get hold of baby clothes in size 44. The usual shops hardly carry these extra small sizes or don't always have them in stock.
With us, after the - certainly overwhelming - events of the early birth, you can shop from the comfort of your own home, around the clock, without having to rush through shops and ask around. Orders placed before 1pm are usually shipped the same day, so you can expect delivery within two to three working days*. If you're in a hurry, we also offer express delivery via UPS Express.
