Tiny NICU babies dressed up as superheroes to celebrate Halloween

Because every child deserves to get dressed up for Halloween, nurses and volunteers with the March of Dimes visited parents at St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Mo. to help give the tiny babies in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) an extra special Halloween.

"The parents were able to choose their babies’ costumes to match the babies’ personalities," Michelle Manuel, the hospital's director of media relations, tells ABC News. "The idea is to be able to allow parents to have a sense of normalcy. In the NICU you might be there for weeks or months and this is to help spend that first Halloween and those special first moments together — make those special family memories with us."

Gently placing tiny felt costumes on their backs, many parents opted to dress their babies in superhero capes to highlight the courageous fight these little ones endure each day.
