While in the NICU with their identical twin girls, born at 23 weeks and 6 days gestation, A NICU nurse told Eric and Kristin Moan to measure their babies’ growth by taking a photograph every day with the same stuffed animal. Instead, they chose a Mr. Potato Head, which is easier to clean and disinfect.
The Moans started the Potato Head Project to provide Mr. Potato Head toys to
families in the NICU. The organization is there to provide families with a place to turn and a way to watch your baby grow as they reach their milestones!
If you are using this book because you too had a micro-preemie, you can request a Potato Head Package for your child at no cost. You can also find us on Facebook, where you can see other babies who have used Potato Heads, and post your own photos as well!
The Potato Head Project is a 501c3 nonprofit started by Eric and Kristin Moan.
