Halloween in the NICU

Norton Children’s tiniest patients enjoy their first Halloween

Helping the hospital’s tiniest patients

Want to help babies and families in the NICU?

Norton Children’s Hospital neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) celebrates Halloween every year with parents and staff dressing the babies in costumes. For parents, it’s a welcome break from life in the hospital to share a special day with their child. The babies are dressed carefully under the watch of doctors and nurses in costumes provided by families or staff. Some costumes are handmade and others are intended for dolls or stuffed animals.
