NICU BONDING SQUARES - 6 Pack, designed for NICU babies
Pack of six supersoft sensory muslin bonding squares in our high contrast black and white Love Heart pattern. Designed to the millimetre using the latest research on premmie baby vision and scaled alongside our consultant orthoptist (expert in infant vision) to support vision from prematurity to around two months old.
The bonding squares support connection by having one kept against a parent’s skin, and the other in the baby’s incubator, and then they are swapped regularly. The scent transference between the parent and child has been proven to be beneficial for developing a bond even when separated, enabling extremely poorly babies to connect with the smell of their parents and be comforted by it.
“This amazing product offers a beautiful olive branch of hope, comfort and connection during a time of exceptional hardship. These squares facilitate the very earliest seeds of bonding, through sensory experience of first touch and smell. The importance of which cannot be overstated for families at the most vulnerable time in their lives.” Christina Axton, Junior NICU Sister.
Pack includes six small black and white muslin squares in our exclusive Love Heart design, drawn by four incredible children who started their life in a NICU.
Each muslin bonding square is 6in x 6in. Pack includes 6 x bonding squares.
