The Teeny Tears Mission
Teeny Tears is a service organization that provides tiny flannel diapers and mini-blankets at no charge to hospitals, funeral homes, and bereavement support organizations, for families that have suffered the loss of a preemie or micropreemie child through stillbirth or NICU loss. Many of these angel babies are far too small for even the very tiniest commercial diapers.
Grieving parents often feel very lost, alone, and confused. Every special effort to honor their loss goes a long way. Our gifts, made with love, tell parents that someone understands that their child existed, that they are special, loved, real, and that they matter. The love that goes into these gifts tells a grieving parent that someone understands that their loss is tremendous. Because a "person’s a person, no matter how small".
The need for Teeny Tears clothing is vast and endless. Gone are the days when angel babies must be left with naked bums because there is nothing suitable. No longer must nurses try to fashion a “diaper” out of cotton balls and tape. Our little diapers offer dignity and modesty to the tiniest angel babies. Teeny Tears diapers are soft against delicate skin and can be used to enhance photographic memories as well as offer dignity and modesty for the tiniest angels. For babies too small to wear our diapers, our mini-blankets with hats are the perfect clothing for their itty bitty bodies.
As an inexpensive, simple, unique, educational, and meaningful service opportunity, Teeny Tears items are being created by families, sewing clubs, youth groups, Eagle Projects, Angel Mother grief support organizations, and churches of all religious denominations! Welcome to Teeny Tears!
