HELLO, WE ARE OCTOPUS FOR A PREEMIE
Our crocheted octopuses help premature babies through their first days of life

 

900 BABIES CUDDLED AN OCTOPUS IN 2016
We can knit and gift more octopuses with your help

 

OUR OCTOPUSES ARE DONATED TO UK MATERNITY UNITS
Our little octopuses help to make babies and their parents feel calmer and safer

 

ANYONE CAN GET INVOLVED
You can knit octopuses, donate or sponsor us

We are a group of people who crochet and knit little octopuses and jellyfish to comfort babies who decided to come into the world a little earlier than expected.

To the premature baby, our carefully made octopus’s tentacles feel like their mother’s umbilical cord. Comforting the baby and reducing the risk of the little one pulling the medical bits and bobs they may need and potentially cause serious problems for them.

We are a team of UK volunteers brought together by coordinators who make sure the octopuses are just right for premature babies and give them to our ever-increasing number of hospitals we supply.

Our octopuses and jellyfish really help our babies and parents through their first days of life. We would love you to join us and help in any way you can.

From picking up the crochet hook to getting involved in some other way we would love to hear from you.

Join us all at our Facebook Group here.
