We are two baby obsessed, Neonatal ICU nurses with a common passion for helping others and a shared dream to make a difference. Many believe it takes a special person to work with tiny babies, but for us it is what we love to do. We started off as colleagues tending to critically ill newborns. It was only a matter of time before we were making footprint crafts for the families, creating bows and hats to fit the tiniest heads, and transforming our fragile fighters into the “best dressed” in the NICU. Watching a tiny baby fight for their life with each breath, holding the hands of the families as they brave it at the bedside, and witnessing the tears that turn to smiles are the reasons we decided to found Luc&Lou.
More than 16 million children in the United States live in families with income below the federal poverty level. Witnessing the daily struggles these families face in order to provide the basics for their newborn babies, we have committed ourselves to helping underprivileged infants have an easier start to life. Our hope is that with an easier start, they too can make a difference. We have partnered with several non-profits nationwide to ensure that every onesie purchased will touch the heart of another baby in need. Let’s make LOVE contagious!
The babies in the NICU have given us the greatest gift. They taught us how to believe in miracles. They showed us how to be strong, when being strong was the only option. They are so small, yet have a determination that is larger than life itself. They have filled our hearts with so much love and joy. They are the reason we give back.
