Knit Breasts Help New Moms

Talk about a unique gift. Hobby crafters Sandra Hunter and Cheryl Staff made knit breasts for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the British Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. One might wonder why knit breasts? According to the hospital, the oversized amigurumi are valuable teaching tools for moms new to breastfeeding — and the hospital already had a surplus of baby clothes. While slightly giggly at the thought of making something so unusual, Hunter and Staff have created over 100 knit breasts, and the hospital is very thankful.
To learn more about the knit breasts as well as the crafters' next surprising charity project, head to EDP24.

    I do these but they are a bit smaller than these. My daughter is studying midwifery and I have ended uop making over 20 of them.
