NICU babies get a taste of Halloween thanks to volunteers

The little inhabitants of Parkland Memorial Hospital’s neonatal ICU did their own bit to mark Halloween, sporting homemade costumes for the spooktacular occasion. 
Up to 80 babies got the costumes, created at a crafting party held Oct. 22 at the Dallas hospital. Lending a hand were staff members of the neonatal intensive-care unit, parents and volunteers, using felt, ribbon, glitter and hot glue made available thanks to grants from the Pauline Graivier fund and the Parkland Auxiliary. The socially distanced crafters fashioned an outfit for each NICU baby, with costumes including candy corn, Elvis Presley, ninja turtles, and peas in a pod.
