What is 
a Preemie ? 




March of Dimes 


if Dimes' 


As the legend tells it, Preemies '" were brought in from 
the Cabbage Patch" one day when a chilling late spring 
frost called "Blackberry Winter" swept through. This 
made it too risky to let them stay in the special place 
where they grow. 

Colonel Casey, the stork, and the 'Kids " worked all day 
to get the Preemies ™ out ot the cold and into the shelter 
of Babyland General*. By acting fast, they rescued every 
last one! 

Preemies'" are smaller than other Cabbage Patch Kids'" 
because they've been adopted at an earlier age. But 
besides that, they're perfect in every way. With lots of 
love and care, your new baby Preemie'" will always be 
happy and healthy. 

Real -life premature babies (preemies) aren't always so 
lucky. When babies come into the world too soon, their 
lives can be very hard. 

Because real preemies are so tiny, ihey need special 
attention and care to help them do almost everything. 
Doctors and nurses must watch over them constantly. 
Before these preemies are ready to go home, they often 
have to stay in the hospital for a long time. 

So when you take your Cabbage Patch Kids ™ Preemie™ 
home, think of how lucky you both are. Show your special 
Preemie™ all the tenderness and love that you can. And 
before you tuck your Preemie™ in at night, say a little 
prayer that better new ways are found to prevent real 
babies from being born too small and too soon. 

A Message to Parents: 

The Cabbage Patch Kids ™ doll can help your child learn 
how to love and care for a tiny baby. While a Preemie™ 
doll is small, it is perfectly healthy. We hope that both 
children and grown-ups alike may learn more about 
some tiny babies who are not always healthy . ..the 
thousands of real babies born prematurely each year. 

Dedicated doctors and nurses are learning, too They're 
seeking new ways of keeping babies from being born 
too small, top soon. Because . . . 

• Premature birth is the major cause of infant illness and 
death in the United States. 

• Babies born before the 37th week of a pregnancy 
often have serious problems with breathing, heart 
function, body chemistry, and eye'brain damage. 

• Intensive care needed by five percent of newborns in 
the U.S. costs about $1.5 billion per year. 

In some places, special care of mothers at risk of having 
their babies too early has markedly increased the num- 
ber of full-term births. The March of Dimes is funding 
similar programs in other places to help bring the same 
kind of success for mothers and newborn babies all over 
the country 

Cabbage Patch Kids™ are proud to help the March of 

Dimes in their work to combat the effects of premature 

birth. You can help, too, by 

adding your support. For 

more information about 

preventing premature 

births, call your local 

chapter of the March 

of Dimes.
