Northwest Diaper Dreamers

Our amazing volunteers in Washington State, known here as the Northwestern Diaper Dreamers (NWDD), have donated more than 4400 diapers as well as countless blankets and swaddlers for grieving families across the United States.  We are ever thankful for their generosity, enthusiasm, and dedication to angel babies and their families left behind.

Some of their recent shipments have provided for the yearly needs of the following facilities:
Central Washington Hospital of Wenatchee, Washington
Island Hospital of Anacortes, Washington
Providence St. Mary of Walla Walla, Washington
Walla Walla General Hospital of Walla Walla, Washington
NILMDTS of Seattle/Tacoma, Washington
NILMDTS of McMinnville, Oregon
NILMDTS of Carmichael, California
Alaska Native Medical Center of Anchorage, Alaska
Henry Ford Bloomfield Hospital of Bloomfield, Michigan
Wadley Regional Medical Center of Texarkana, Texas

Diapers, diapers, diapers!  (And hats and blankets/swaddlers!)
"We love doing this project and are continually amazed and overwhelmed that we have the support to continue making diapers. We appreciate all of our helpers who cut out endless amounts of diapers and all of those who come to our "diaper parties" to help out. This would not be possible without all the wonderful help.

Our local quilt shop (Tangled Threads Quilt Shop) has a sign posted and we have many people donate flannel. They even let us hold diaper parties at their shop!! 

All of the diaper sets are sent with small cards and an angel's name along with the Teeny Tears website. We have been honored to hear from a few families who have received the diapers, although it's always bittersweet as we wish no one ever needed the diapers.

We donate a fair amount of diapers in Carter's name, but we also donate in other angel babies names. I feel like it's some small thing that I can do to help other baby loss moms. There is something about seeing your baby's name written down for others to see that validates their presence in this world, no matter how brief. I've said it before but this has been such a healing project for me in so many ways and my mom and I often call it our 'diaper therapy'."  ~Jana, Northwestern Diaper Dreamer
