Our care packages are hand packaged with love and encouragement for families facing craniosynostosis surgery. We try to put items that will be both comforting and useful before, during and after surgery.
They do vary on age, size and gender of the child but most packages contain handmade comfort blankets that are so soft and cuddly, handmade hats to fit those beautiful new heads and keep fingers from scratching at the scars, socks for mom and child, a toy or teether, snacks to give you energy while waiting for your precious baby to come out of surgery, chap stick, toiletries, bibs, etc. If you have an older child, we substitute a few items and include a fun toy they can do while recovering.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to shipping costs and customs, any packages sent out of the US will be substantially smaller but would include a blanket, hat, ribbons and pajamas.
We are also offering an “upgraded” care package which will include more items for a postage fee to pay the difference.
Here’s my son James from Helensburgh, Scotland proudly wearing his hat from Cranio Care Bears. The support you all gave my family was amazing. And I cried when I received our care package as there was so much wonderful useful things in it that you people give to help folk for free, I think you are truly amazing and we thank you from our hearts. xxxx Dawn M

Cranio Care Bears started with 2 cranio moms (Summer & Shelby) who’s sons had craniosynostosis and underwent surgery.
The moms decided to try to touch as many lives as possible and make this surgery just a little bit easier to go through with care packages. Read our stories of our journey!
