Gowns - Saques

While babies still need blankets to cover car seats on a cold day and to play on the floor they are discouraged as bedding.  Today babies sleep on their backs wearing some sort of sleeper gowns /saques.

Mini Layette - Quad Cities

  • Quad Cities

    Monthly we provide approximately 25 mini-layettes to a pregnancy center in Iowa.  Each mini-layette contains a prayer card, small sleeper (may include a bib as shown), undershirt, cap, receiving blanket and six diapers.  Every client at the center who has a positive pregnancy test receives a mini-layette as a gift. 

  • Christ Child of Central Illinois

    We were lucky to be the recipient of layette items from CCD classes that had birthday party for Baby Jesus as their Christmas party. Next year they are planning to contact all the parishes in the Peoria Diocese and encourage them to do the same.


  • Texas Capital Area

    A local first grade religious education bless them with many baby items.

    The class performed a Gifts to Baby Jesus role play: they all participated and were anxious to adore and present their gifts before the Nativity.  Wasn't this an excellent class for Christmas!


  • The Christ Child Society of San Diego

    We have an ongoing relationship with University of San Diego (a Catholic university).  They facilitate the Pro-Life group’s making of quilts and their assembling layettes twice a year. The students assemble the blankets and yarn-tie them into quilts and then CCS sews around the quilts to finish them off. CCS purchases layette items with a collection that the college group takes up at one of their masses. A couple of months later CCS facilitates the students assembling the layettes. It is great to be able to call these students to be holy in this way. They have shared that they feel wonderful after having done this good work in the name of the Christ Child.

  • Door County

    Door County Christ Child will celebrate a mass with the priests of the area and the children of St. John Bosco School.  Layette items always abound.  The generosity of local people is awesome.
