NICU team helps babies celebrate Halloween

Neonatal Intensive Care unit (NICU) team members from Riley Children's Health at IU Health North in Carmel helped infant patients celebrate Halloween within the hospital walls.

Team members signed up to create a costume for a patient based on a children's book. Then, the team dressed up the patients in the costumes and gifted them the corresponding book.

The costumes include a unicorn, a crab, a spider and more. The team took photos of the babies to share with their parents.
