Dear friends of mine gave birth to a baby boy on Thursday at 26 +2 and weighing 700gr. Early signs are that he's a little fighter He was born while they were in Bali (!) and I'd really like to get him a tiny little singlet with some sort of Bali logo on it - maybe not a Bintang one but something like that! Both his parents have a great sense of humour and are being very positive about the situation so I'm fairly sure they'd appreciate the humour. Does anyone know how I would go about finding someone who could make something like this for me?
Thanks in advance

Most people who sew could whip up a small outfit for you. But be careful. When the babies are really tiny they don't wear anything except a nappy because of the tubes and wires. Then they need a smock that ties up to help for ease of changes.
My baby didn't wear real clothes until she was about 2kg and could nearly fit into 000000 regular. You could buy some 00000 singlets and print on them maybe.

Thanks Jerry! I was thinking more of a memento rather than something he would actually wear. But that's a good idea to buy some tiny singlets and try to do it myself. Thanks
