When Elizabeth Murphy gave birth to the first of her three premature babies, she was told by a nurse to go to a toy store and buy Cabbage Patch doll clothes – such was the lack of clothing available at the time. "It was the last thing I needed: my babies were vulnerable enough without seeing them in dolls’ clothes." she says. Realising the gap in the market, Elizabeth went on to create La Toriana, an online baby boutique catering for premmie babies up to children eight years of age.
To celebrate National Premmie Day this Friday, La Toriana has joined forces with Lambykins, a company renowned for producing luxurious Australian-made merino blankets and baby clothing. Together they’ve released Lambykins’ Organic Premmie Collection and La Toriana’s Premmie Clothing. The 100 per cent certified organic cotton Premmie Natural Range from Lambykins complements their existing collection of organic clothing and blankets. Each garment from the Organic Premmie Collection features a hand-drawn design and arrives with a special poem that offers support to the parents of precious premmie bubs.
Check out the gorgeous range of premmie baby clothing at La Toriana and shop happy in the knowledge that a percentage of sales from this section of the site will be donated to charities who assist families with premature bubs of their own.
