These Awesome NICU Nurses Made Halloween Costumes For Their Preemie Patients

So sweet!

A group of special NICU babies helped usher in Prematurity Awareness Month and bid farewell to October with their precious Halloween costumes.

On October 31, the NICU nurses at Loyola Medicine in Maywood, Illinois dressed the hospital's tiniest patients in sweet handmade costumes for their annual contest. This year, the contest featured a baby Yoda, lion, minion, peanut butter and jelly, Michael Jordan and more.

The hospital shared photos of the babies in their costumes on Facebook, along with a festive message -- "We wish all families and their little goblins a safe and happy Halloween!"
