Oregon woman delivers knit caps to babies in the NICU

ROCKFORD - An Oregon woman is helping newborns to stay nice and cozy at a local hospital.

Sylvia King spent a week in Mercyhealth's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) when she was a baby. Now, she knits hats for infants staying there.

She delivered 24 hats to the hospital Thursday morning. 

NICU Supervisor Kathy Way says gestures like that can mean a lot to the parents.

"Having someone who has been through that, and to understand what they may be going through, always brings a smile when they may be feeling tears at that moment," she said. "To get something from someone who's been there often is very comforting."

Sylvia works for the non-profit Village of Progress in Oregon, a center specifically for adults with disabilities.
