The Nominate a NICU program, in partnership with 4moms and Project Sweet Peas, invites communities to share their stories about their incredible NICUs and NICU staff for the opportunity to become one of 15 hospitals to receive MamaRoo4 Infant Seat donations.
To honor NICU Awareness Month, and celebrate the 5th year of the Nominate a NICU program, we will donate nearly $18,000 in 4moms MamaRoo4 Infant Seats to 15 NICUs across the country.
But we can’t do it alone!
NOMINATE A NICU
Click the link below and share your own NICU story to nominate your hospital. Tell us about the incredible NICU staff you worked with, or if you're on a NICU team yourself, nominate your hospital! Together, we'll donate MamaRoo4 Infant Seats to 15 deserving hospitals across the country.
NICU selection process is based on a number of factors, including submission stories, the number of times a NICU is nominated, and the ability for Project Sweet Peas or The Superhero Project to deliver in a market. We want to donate to as many hospitals as possible, therefore the 10 donation recipient hospitals that received mamaRoos last year, will not be eligible this year. They will be able to reapply in 2022. The nomination submission period ends on September 30, 2021.
NICU + MamaRoo
Why are MamaRoo Infant Seats needed in NICUs? Because doctors and nurses have found its motions transformational in caring for preemies and babies. Our project’s mission is to give hospital staff and families the extra set of arms they need to comfort their little ones in the NICU.

4moms is the the maker of the MamaRoo4 Infant Seat. First introduced in 2010, the mamaRoo instantly became a must-have for new parents. They continue to develop dramatically better baby gear that helps make parents’ lives a little easier.
Meet Project Sweet Peas
Three women came together for support and comfort after their own NICU experience, where they began filling and distributing gift bags of items they wish they had during their stay. Project Sweet Peas slowly grew into a national network of parents and volunteers who are passionate about providing support to families of premature or sick infants, and to those who have been affected by pregnancy and infant loss.
