Each sweater was knitted by a nurse who works at the hospital.

"I tried to make ugly Christmas sweaters for the babies, but I actually think they turned out pretty cute," said Caitlin Peachin, a nurse who works in the hospital's mother-baby unit. "My top three favorite sweaters were the Christmas tree, my second favorite was the snowman, and then my absolute favorite was the penguin, it just turned out so cute."

The babies and their families even got a chance to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus.

The hospital also decorated the nursery with holiday decorations, including a sign that said, "Ugly Sweaters, Cute Babies."
