Save your favorite baby clothes or hospital blanket by having them made into a custom keepsake memory teddy bear, made to your baby's actual birth weight and length! The micro sized weighted baby memory bear can be made from something as small as a newborn sized footed sleeper, though we may need to supplement with a complementary fabric. The Preemie size require two sleepers or a blanket and the Full Term size requires three sleepers or a blanket. We'll use the pattern on your fabric thoughtfully, add a handmade felt nose and safety eyes, and make your bear to your specified weight and length within a 5% margin. Our weighted teddy bears make wonderful first birthday keepsakes, Mother's Day gifts, NICU keepsakes or bereavement gifts.
You have three options for your weighted baby keepsake bear: 1. Micro: up to 3 lbs or 1360gm (minimum 10"/26cm length) 2. Preemie: 3lbs-4lbs15oz or 1361-2239gm 3. Full term: 5lbs-8lbs 8oz or 2240-3855gm *If your baby was over 8lbs 8oz, please contact us for a custom quote
