NICU Milestone Beads


In light of the rapidly changing COVID-19 developments, and in order to help protect our organization, staff, families served, and customers, Hand to Hold has made the difficult decision to temporarily close our online store. The decision was not made lightly, but we feel as though this is what’s best for our staff and customers.
All online orders will be processed and shipped when the Shelter In Place mandate is lifted here in Austin, Texas. Please check or contact for updates and questions.
Taking care of our organization, staff, the families we serve and our customers is our top priority. Stay healthy and safe.

When your baby is born early or with special healthcare concerns, milestones have a very different meaning.

Hand to Hold’s NICU Milestone Beads celebrate each special step in a family’s NICU journey.

For NICU parents, the beads are more than just a piece of jewelry. They are a symbol of their baby’s story.

Each necklace includes a NICU Milestone Bead Chart in which the family can record dates and make special notes as their baby reaches each milestone.

Hand to Hold also offers a special Love and Loss bead kit, a keepsake for families to memorialize their baby after enduring a devastating loss in the NICU.

“The “little” milestones to some people were so big to us, and this was such a wonderful way to recognize and celebrate every milestone we had been through. I will always cherish her necklace, and she will one day, too.”
Kaleigh K.

“My Milestone Beads are some of my most prized possessions. They are a reflection of all the positive experiences we faced in the NICU.”
