Huggies Little Snugglers Nano Preemie Diapers is designed for babies weighing 2 pounds or less. The Neenah company worked with neonatal ICU nurses and neonatal therapists to design the diapers, which provide extra skin protection for premature infants.

In addition to K-C, the other finalists in the competition include MuL Technologies of Mequon for its mobile autonomous robotic cart; C.C. Mas of Stoughton for its adaptive children’s clothing; and Caterpillar Global Mining of South Milwaukee for its electric rope shovel.
