MY KOTA BEAR - Paramount Preemies Birthed Into Greatness

Paramount means "more important than anything else; supreme.  When families give birth to a preemie baby, there is nothing more important than getting them well enough to come home and continue to thrive.

Our Mission:

My Kota Bear is a global company that provides services and goods for the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) families in our community.  My Kota Bear’s mission is to bring awareness, education, and support to NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) families in our communities.

Our Goal:

Our goal is to raise funds and collect items to give back to NICU families in communities by donating baby clothes (including preemie size), diapers, wipes, car seats, strollers, toiletries, formula, gas cards, gift cards, etc.  Also, our goal is to provide education and awareness to help prevent pre-term labor and births.

We, also, (in the future) want to provide cameras for hospital NICU's so that families can see their babies when they can not be with them.  The cameras in the hospital are now essential, especially on the heels of Covid-19.  Many families have other children that may need their attention, the parents have to return to work or the NICU visitors are limited to just 1 parent due to Covid-19.  This additional stress of a parent not being able to be with their child can be minimized by allowing them to see & speak to their baby in the isolate in the NICU in real time via website or phone app.

Dakota at 1 1/2 Yrs Old

Our Story

My Name is Dakota and I was born 5 months premature at 22 weeks.  I made my grand entrance into this world on January 2, 2017 weighing in at a whopping 1 lb. 

I, even, went under 1 lb during my hospital stay at Hillcrest Hospital (Cleveland Clinic) in Ohio.

My parents did not expect me until May 2017, so, yes, I was 4 months early, but I was ready to meet my beautiful family.  

I resided in the NeoNatal Intensive Care Unit for 141 days until I got big and strong enough to go home.  

So, just like me, there are thousands of premature babies that come into the world and their families are not prepared. So, it is our mission to help them!
