Nurses bundle newborns in stockings; adorable photos go viral

Proving what gifts they are, newborn babies at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center donned special garb on Christmas Day, when the staff wrapped them in stockings and hand-knitted hats.

For the past several years, the nurses at the medical center’s Magee-Womens Hospital have given away dozens of the tots’ knitted red hats on Christmas Eve. This year, they shared the touching photos on Facebook, and watched the images quickly go viral.

“If you’ve walked through the Magee lobby recently, you may have noticed a group of women surrounded by construction tape,” the Facebook post said. “Known as the ‘Magee Knitters,’ the group started in September 2014 with a mission to make caps for the newborn babies at the hospital.”

Instead of being wrapped in blankets, the babies sport Christmas stockings to celebrate the holiday season.
