GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — On Tuesday, St. Mary’s neonatal intensive care unit helped their smallest community members celebrate their first Halloweens.
Volunteers and NICU nurses made Halloween costumes for all of their infants. Infants were dressed as dinosaurs, minions, skeletons and more.
Macy McKim, St. Mary’s clinical nurse manager, said that parents and families in the NICU miss out on opportunities to celebrate holidays like Halloween. So, this allows them to have a good memory from their time in the NICU.
All the NICU staff, who were dressed as M&M’s on Tuesday, hope that families have fun with their dressed-up infants this Halloween.
