    • IAPT helped me to realize that I wasn’t alone out there! I am always able to connect with the things you post about on FB. And your products, well I’ve always wanted something from IAPT but I always find it hard to choose something because I love everything you’ve got. And I love that in a way, it’s our way of helping our babies speak out for themselves, who they are and the struggles they’ve been through to get to where they are, facing the person reading the shirt at that moment in time.

  • I Rock the Camera on fuschia, 4T. I love IAPT because it’s completely unique for our little guys. I got some awesome t’s for my 23 weeker from IAPT and get complemented on them all the time. Wish they still fit! My micro has outgrown toddler size shirts, so this would be for my little girl!

  • I love the info and topics on FB. I look forward to Good News Mondays and hearing about everyone’s accomplishments and how much our babies have overcome.

    I just adore the footprint shirts. If I win, I’d like the royal blue onesie size 12 to 18 months to show “30 weeks” and “3 lb, 9 oz”.

  • I LOVE the footprint onesie with the gestational age (33weeks) and the weight (3pounds, 14 ounces) in blue or other “boy color” in a newborn size. I think the best thing about IAPT is that until I found sites like this I felt very alone as a preemie parent and it is a very healing thing to have a community that understands:-)

  • I would love a purple little ones t-shirt with the saying “No really… I’m one!”

  • Oops, forgot the size! It would have to be in size 3-6 months 🙁

    • Michelle, I recently did a “Seriously…I’m Two” in a 3-6 month…so hang in there momma! <3

      • That was supposed to be a smiley face! LOL!!! Even if my daughter was a termie, genetics wouldn’t be on her side size-wise 😉

    • Oh, and what I love most about IAPT is the awesome sayings you come up with for the T-shirts 😀

  • Love your products and follow you on Facebook!!!
    We like the tiny ts in black 6-12 mth with once tiny always strong. 33 weeks 4 pounds 5 oz. it’s for a little girl!

  • I’d love to win but I have a trio so I couldn’t pick just for one of them. I would love for them to each have a red shirt size 6-12 months with the foot prints with their weight in one foot and A, B, or C like I have on the back of my shirt you made me and my husband for their birthday 🙂 What I love about IAPT is the community of parents who have walked the preemie/NICU journey and support each other along the way with encouraging words, humor and a listening ear!

  • Even though everyone has a different story, we all have so much in common! I love reading about everyones situations! Congrats on 9,000 fans!!! I would love a 2T royal blue with white writing that says “4 pound miracle.”

  • What I like best about IAPT: the products remind us to be thankful about how far our little ones have come!

  • Once Tiny… Always Strong! With footprints in the middle of the the two sayings 34 weeks, 4 lbs 8 oz. in green! Little T in 12-18 months.

    I love Its A Preemie Thing because it is a great community for mothers of premature babies. I am the only girl who is the mother of a preemie in my friend group, I felt kind of out of place because I didnt make it full term I didnt get the countdown to 40 weeks or the whole fancy newborn photo shoot or a normal birth, I would appreciate each and every little milestone and they just didnt understand. They didnt quite understand, that I went through so much with giving birth so early and having my son in the NICU which was a traumatic experience and I just wanted someone to relate to. And on your site and page I found so many online friends to relate to! Who understand the fear pain and emotions that we go through! Also preemie clothes are so hard to find and your site is great with the phrases and the clothes i can keep for my son to look at later on in life as a keepsake. Nothing beats personalized preemie clothes. Thank you for all you do for us preemie families, It really does mean a lot!

  • I would love a long sleeve onesie in 0-3 months in royal blue with footprints 31 wks & 2ibs15oz. I love the Facebook page and the products, I wish I had found this before my little guy came home! Love everything!!

  • It’s so hard to pick up 1 saying as my favorite, But I think I found it… Footprints with “29 wks” in one foot and “2lbs 5oz” in other foot. I would need it in size 2T with 33Weeks and 5lbs in purple. Congratulation on 9000 fan’s!!!!

  • I love the foot prints 32weeks 3.5 lbs in a 2t

  • I would like to win a short sleeve shirt that says “Once Tiny… Always Strong!” With footprints in the middle of the the two sayings (23 weeks…1 lb 5 oz). Size 2T, black with white lettering.

    I love all the fun IAPT shirts with sayings that I can relate to. I also love Good News Mondays. =)

  • I’ve tweeted about the giveaway!

  • I would love a short sleeved black tshirt with white writing with the 2 footprints. 27 weeks, 2 lbs 8 oz :). I’m trying to decide on a size, he’s currently between 12-18 months in most clothes, closer to the 18 month size. I’m afraid the 12-18 month size might not fit him very long, but the 2t would be way too big! I guess if I won I would prefer 2t because he could grow into it!

  • Oh! And I absolutely love this site! Great merchandise, and lots of great comments from other preemie parents who know what it’s like!

  • Wow! I love the onesies! As our NICU graduation approaches, it would be fabulous to win one of your onesies. I would like the blue one, with the 2 feet. 27 weeks, 2# 5 oz. in 6-12 months.
    Thank you for making preemie awareness stylish! 🙂

  • I love the Once Tiny……Always Strong shirt 31 weeks 3lbs (4T in Green, unless you have a 3T)…….There was so much stress in my life when my youngest son was born…..My oncle and father in-law were both going through caner treatments, it was my last day of work as we were moving back to our home town (2hrs away.) All of this was happening in December!!!! On my way into town for work/drop of my 18 month old son/regular Dr check up, I realized something was very wrong as I clued in that I was in labour!! We have come through a lot as my son had to stay in the NICU for 2 months while I travelled back and forth between the 2 cities….I’m grateful for my family and very proud of how far my son has come!! I would love to have a shirt so everyone else can see how special and how far he has come too!!

  • Would love a black size 2T “I’m proof miracles do happen!”. Thank you!

  • I pinned it on my fashon board as well!! I love these shirts!!

  • 9-12 months long sleeve onsie pink God’s 1 pound miracle… Would look adorable on my daughter. I love this website. Emotionally it has gotten me through the roller coaster ride of having my 27 weeker. I will be ordering shirts from you every year for our March of Dimes Walk!!!

  • Footprints with “34 wks” in one foot and “2lbs 6oz” in other foot in 4T Black t-shirt please!!!

  • I would like the black shirt with the sparkle raspberry that has the feet print with one saying 27wk -2lb6 ounce size 12 months please

  • I like the miracles do happen (seeing how he was never suppose to be born) in a size 12 month in blue. But all your stuff is amazing and wonderful!

  • I would love to win a 3T Fuschia shirt with purple sparkle writing that says (with footprints!) 26 weeks 1Lb. 7oz.

    What I love most about IaPT is that products are made by a mom of a preemie! The products are well made and super adorable! I tell everyone I know who has a preemie about all of the awesome items!

  • I pinned to Pinterest also 🙂

  • I like the Once Tiny…Always Strong in Navy blue. My daughter wears a 4T & was born at 27 wks, weighing 2 lb 1 oz. Thanks for supporting preemie families! I like the FB feed/updates.

  • I love the 2t fushia Nicu grad shirt. I love everything about Its a preemie thing. . . how you raise awareness and have cute products for preemies

  • I love IAPT because it allows me to show off my pride for where my son came from and helps me to embrace the situations we’ve been through. It raises awareness in a very fun, cute, conversational way.

    I would love a green onsie with the footprints on it.
    29 weeks 2 pounds 8 ounces

    And lets do size 3-6 months since he’s almost grown out of 0-3 and I want him to wear it lots.

  • Tweeted (not that I’m EVER on twitter!) and following you now! Preemie <3

  • 3T Black with sparkly pink foot prints 25 weeks, 1 lb 14 oz Once Tiny… Always strong.
    Good job on everything you’ve done. I find your company such an inspiration, having had our preemies close to the same time I love to see what you’ve done with the preemie experience.

    I did a pin too, hope I entered that right for an extra entry.

  • I love the once tiny always strong shirt in pink size 24 months. My daughter was a preemie, totally shocked that I had a preemie when my six other kids were full term. It was alot harder on us cause I couldn’t go everyday to the NICU and we had our other kids at home and we homeschool. I love this site I didn’t find t until a few months ago. But I really felt like the only person struggling with a baby in the NICU. I wish I would have came across this site when my daughter was born so I knew I wasn’t alone. My daughter was born at 33 weeks and weighed 4lbs 10oz.

  • “I’m Proof Miracles Happen” Royal Blue, 12-18 months.

    What I LOVE about IAPT is that if not having a preemie robs most of us of doing what full term parents get to do, you make clothes small enough for our miracle babies! It is so much more than a shirt or onesie or anything to do with the apparel. It has to do with making the mother and father’s feel like their itty bitty baby is no different than a full term baby! YOU ROCK!

  • I want Isaac newton was a preemie.. Gray shirt 6-12mos with pink sparkle lettering! I just ordered the preemie princess shirt for my daughters one yr birthday! I’ll be sharing on fb soon:)

    What I love the most about iapt is the same about life after Nicu and Graham’s foundation too! It’s knowing I’m not alone. It’s knowing that is ok to laugh. And cry for that matter:)

  • I would love “No really….I’m one!” in raspberry sparkle in 6-12 month White Baby T! My daughter turns one in december so this would be perfect!!!

    I love iapt because I think you give hope and bring humor to preemie parents in a time that isn’t always so funny. I know you gave me a little laugh when I needed one when I found you!! Great Stuff!!

  • Oh how I love contests! LOL!

    Finn *needs* a 6-12m long sleeved onesie in green that says “Elf Sized” for Christmas season! I think it would be GREAT for him to wear it in our Christmas card pictures…

    I love reading everyone’s comments!

    • I forgot what to say I loved most about IAPT! I think this is a WONDERFUL resource for so many reasons, but right this second I would have to say the PRODUCTS are my favorite thing! I can’t wait to receive the custom March for Babies shirts we ordered! SUCH a unique way to show our preemie pride!

  • I pinned this a long time ago! But I think it still counts!! Love your stuff!!

  • So excited about this contest! I tweeted! <3

  • Hi! We’d love a Toddler T in size 4T (I don’t see 3T as an option) in royal blue with white vinyl lettering, saying “it’s a preemie thing”. Tweet done and here is my Pin Thanks!

  • We love IAPT! I would love to continue this tradition of using the “Once Tiny,Always Strong” with the footprints for my 23 weeker that weighed 14 ozer. for our NICU reunion t-shirts and one for my son’s BIG SISTER TO A MICRO PREEMIE! Blue or green for my son and black (5T)with pink sparkles for my daughter (6-7) I also would like a shirt for my daughter with footprints 40 weeks and 5lbs 12oz. to match her micro preemie brother! These shirts are absolutely amazing and we are asked everywhere we go where people can get them!!!

We would like to win the black foot print shirt with 28 weeks 2lbs 3oz in a 6-12 month…. Thank you so much for doing this contest 🙂

  • I would love the foot print onsie size 12 months, black with white foot prints.
    Justin was born at 32 weeks and was 4 lbs 9 oz.
    Justin is my third son. My first was born at 25 weeks and passed away 6 days later. Justin has sensory integration issues. I would love this for him.

  • I pinned several things from the site, but here is a link to one for a contest entry! 🙂

  • Love the shirts. I’d get 3-6mo royal blue Half Year Full Attitude!

  • I love your stuff!! Thank you so much for bringing light to those who are on that NICU rollercoaster now and to those who have been there before it means alot!!

  • I pinned a few things this morning! New to pinning so I Hope it works! I love It’s a preemie thing!

  • I would love a purple 2T shirt with the Footprints and “35 Weeks” & “4lbs 9ozs” and of course then I’d have to get a pink one for her identical twin too 🙂 I love IAPT for all the great FB posts and that I have a place I can send new preemie families I meet to find great products and helpful support.

  • Addie has outgrown her “one pound miracle” T-shirt in size 3T, so I’m going to go up to size 5T for lots of room/time to grow. (She’s been 31 pounds for nearly a year now!) We love purple, so that’s what I’m hoping for!!

    You started IAPT long after we were home from the NICU, but I have loved being able to continue to connect with the preemie community and cheer on other miracles! Our second (full-term) baby had brachycephaly and just graduated from six months in the helmet…I would have been *devastated* if we hadn’t gone through everything else with Addie first.

    You’re the best, Julie! You deserve all the recognition in the world for this awesome job you’re doing!

Thank you so much for doing this!

  • I would love to win “God’s 1 pound miracle”. My daughter Leah was born at 1 pound, 3 ounces and 11 inches. She’ll turn 3 in Feb. and she truly is a miracle. She spent 89 days in the NICU before joining our family at home. She didn’t require any surgeries and when she came home it was without tubes, wires, or oxygen. I’d love a 24 month shirt for her in black with raspberry sparkle for her to wear to her 3rd birthday party.

  • Royal Blue 5T…28 weeks 3lbs 5oz (my not so little man’s graduation is the 22nd!) I love this site for so many reasons, for one it unites so many preemie parents, some old, some new and when you’re first faced with the issue you don’t realize how many families it truly affects. I know with my first i was amazed to see how big of a issue it truly is and had an amazing Pod and NICU family, but this site would’ve been great at the time to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel and things DO get better. Its an inspiration for parents of new preemies. I also like the awareness it brings theres ALOT of ignorance regarding preemies.

  • I would love the footprints in a 4T 🙂

    I love IAPT, the shirts are very well made and great conversation starters that help us spread preemie awareness.

  • Pinned to pininterest

  • “once tiny… Always strong” 30 weeks 3 lbs 6 oz on the feet 2T t shirt white with black sparkle! IAPT, like everyone elses comments, helped me feel comfort knowing we weren’t alone. Obviously delivering my babies 10 weeks early was not something we planned and going into NICU mode took some adjusting. My son spent his first 218 days living in three different NICUs. Hardest time of my life. Always wondering when and if I was going to take him home. It was hard to see everyone lives around me going on about their normal business when it felt like mine was standing still. Having a preemie is a very special blessing. It’s taught me so much! I celebrate the smallest milestones that usually get taken for granted. I love IAPT shirts, their sayings make me smile and laugh! Thank you Julie!!

When everything else is meant for full-term healthy babies, IAPT gives our little miracles a space in this world that is just for them 🙂

  • 2T Navy blue T-shirt with the saying “stunt double in training” for one of my twins. (Obviously I would then order a green one with the same saying).
