Carters, Inc. (NYSE: CRI), the largest branded marketer in North America of apparel exclusively for babies and young children, announced a new preemie collection designed for babies under five pounds. One in ten babies is born too early in the United States, and November 17, 2018 will be recognized around the world as the eighth annual World Prematurity Day to raise awareness and attention for premature births.
Carters has always been a trusted resource for parents, offering an extensive preemie product offering with over 70 styles this fall. The new collection builds on Carters commitment to the preemie community, providing a smaller size with new features designed for premature babies.
Inspired by feedback from the neonatal intensive care staff at Northside Hospital in Atlanta, the largest provider of maternity and newborn services in the United States, the Carters design team incorporated special details for children in intensive care. The new collection includes features like plastic snaps for x-rays and easy access closures at the arms. Acknowledging the momentous milestones and loved ones in a preemies life, certain bodysuits feature heartwarming phrases including NICU Graduate and My Super Heroes Wear Scrubs.
As the leader in childrens apparel, Carters is a brand that generations of families have trusted for their childrens clothing, said Michael D. Casey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The launch of our new preemie product offering demonstrates our commitment to providing parents and every child with the essential products they need in those early years of life.
