You should never be separated from your newborn baby.
Your KangaCarrier will enable you to do this safely by stabilising the baby's airway
For nine months of pregnancy, mother and foetus have been one entity. In the womb the baby is warm, fed and protected, and that is all it needs to develop. When it is newborn, it still needs to be warmed, fed and protected, and when placed skin-to-skin on mother’s chest, a newborn baby is in the one place where warmth, food and protection is best available. Human newborns are born very immature, and in a way complete their gestation and development outside the womb, on mother’s chest.
This specially designed shirt and wrapper comes with careful instructions for correct tying on for the safety of your newborn infant and for your maximum comfort, leaving your hands free to get on with your life, while at the same time doing the best for your baby.
Standard stock is sky blue, a variety of other colours are available from time to time.
As it is a wraparound shirt, it fits most sizes, but is also available as an XL (Extra large)
For background on this shirt see how and where it was developed ... and how to use ot for full term babies, quite separately from premature babies. There are practical tips on its use, and some aspects on safe technique described also.
