SAN ANTONIO, Texas – A San Antonio hospital is sending newborns home in Christmas stockings, starting Wednesday.

The handmade stockings are sewn by the Blue Bird Auxiliary, a 10-member sewing committee volunteer group at Methodist Hospital.

The outfits include a large red stocking with a white cuff and a matching red and white hat. 

The babies are brought to their parents for the first time in the stockings and have their first photo taken in them.
