ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Local families are taking home the gold and their newborn baby.

SwedishAmerican Hospital is celebrating the Olympics by dressing newborns with gold medals. Since the Olympics began last week, more than 15 babies have been "given the gold." But it's not just medals, the babies are also given a very special wardrobe.

"We've got our little medals and our red, white, and blues. We've got our red, white, and blue hats, and our 'Go USA!' socks," Registered Nurse Theresa Evans said.
