30-year-old Leanne Stephanie was left so grateful at how employees in a neonatal had looked after her preemie baby so she decided to give something special.
The single mother from East Sussex bought 140 baby grows from Mothercare and gave them to the staff at Pembury Hospital Special Care Baby Unit.
When her son was born, he had severe jaundice and needed a full blood exchange and more blood transfusions.
Billy, who also has autism, was named after bilirubin, a yellow substance created when red blood cells are broken down, resulting in jaundice.
He spent five days at the hospital and his mother was so relieved when he made a complete recovery.
Billy is now a healthy boy and his mother was left so appreciative of how staff at the hospital took good care of him.
In an interview with Metro.co.uk, Leanne said: “The staff at the unit were amazing. I couldn’t have wished for better staff nor better treatment for both my son and myself I owe them everything.
“It’s 28 sets that have 140 baby grows if added up. Each set has five baby grows, a blanket, hat, and pair of mittens which can use used for babies weighing 2lb-5lb.
“They would’ve cost £240 normally but after 50% off all clothing then a further 70% off, they cost me £36 for all of it.”
Facebook users praised the mother for her heartwarming effort, with one commenting: “A lovely gesture. Clothes in neonatal units mean so much to the families who need them.”
Another wrote: “What a beautiful thing to do, my twins were so small when they were born and I was in too much of a state to think about where to get clothes.”
