BABY BUNDLES (Caring for newborns in need)


Providing essential babywear and blankets to newborns in WA

   Over 6,000 babies are born at King Eddy’s Hospital each year. Many newborns arrive in an emergency and some without the essential babywear and  blankets they need. The Baby Bundles program exists to support WA families who need a helping hand during their newborns first few weeks of life.

Each baby bundle costs only $25
This cost covers materials - wool, fabric and vests. Our dedicated team of volunteers do the rest, giving their time and talents in knitting and sewing the beautiful babywear and blankets (see baby girl bundle below valued at over $100).   

Please help give WA Babies a great start in life by supporting the Baby Bundles Program:

$25 buys one complete baby bundle
$5 buys two baby vests and nappies
$10 buys enough wool to knit a cosy baby blanket
$10 buys fabric and wool for baby clothing
 (knitted  - booties, bonnet, toy, cardigan& fabric for bibs/wrap /sleepsuit)
