National Prematurity Awareness Month


Find out what Mud Pie and March of Dimes are up to together!

You can only imagine how much Mud Pie loves little ones. We are, of course, a company that specializes in baby and kids fashion! Let’s talk about something close to our heart…something that moms, dads, brothers, sisters, everyone should be aware of: premature birth.

About 380,000 babies are born too soon every year, making prematurity the #1 cause of infant death and disabilities in this country. Despite medical treatment in the United States, that gives the tiniest babies a better chance of survival, there are still numerous health challenges and lifelong disabilities faced.

November is the month of thanksgiving, and we are so thankful for all the healthy and happy sweeties in the world! But November is also Prematurity Awareness Month, and a time to give every baby a healthy life. March of Dimes and Mud Pie are committed to improving the health of babies by preventing premature birth, and you can help us by doing the following:

  1. Purchase Mud Pie socks and/or soft headbands. For every purchase, we will make a 10 cent donation to the March of Dimes. Shop all socks and soft headbands HERE!
  2. Go to to show your support for babies and families on World Prematurity day. Pledge Purple for Preemies
  3. Support World Prematurity Day on November 17, 2015.

We believe in happy and healthy babies from head to toe. Thanks to the support of our retailers and customers, Mud Pie has donated $362,500 since 2013 to the March of Dimes – one dime at a time. We have committed to continue our partnership in 2016 with an additional minimum commitment of $150,000.
