NICU Nurses Make Halloween Costumes for Their Preemie Patients

Get ready for cuteness overload! November is Prematurity Awareness Month and a group of NICU nurses at Loyola Medicine in Maywood, Illinois helped kicks things off by dressing a group of special NICU babies in sweet handmade costumes for their annual contest. This year, the contest featured a baby Yoda, lion, minion, peanut butter and jelly, Michael Jordan and more.

The hospital shared photos of the babies in their costumes on Facebook, along with a festive message -- "We wish all families and their little goblins a safe and happy Halloween!"
