AtlantiCare staff will give a onesie to each infant born at the Center for Childbirth. Founded by two neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurses from Florida, Luc&Lou designs feature footprints of babies for whom Dubin and Meyer cared. For each onesie purchased, the non-profit organization donates one to a child in need.
