Finally, the right garment to enjoy Kangaroo Care with your low weight or premature twins!
Skin-to-skin contact (kangaroo care) immediately after birth helps stabilize the temperature of newborns - especially low weight babies, as is often the case with twins. It also helps to promote the initiation of breastfeeding.
The Prema-Wrap™ for twins is made from a soft 4-way stretch 94% cotton / 6% spandex jersey (certified Oeko-tex) for additional comfort for mum and babies - and is flexible enough that your babies can move and seek for the breast.
Side seams and a centre seam with elastic shirring prevents babies from slipping sideways and allows the fabric to follow the shape of the baby without unnecessary pressure. An inner support to the buttocks / lower back prevents baby from slipping down (if support is too high for one or both of the babies - if they are closer to full term size - just cut it).
The adjustable halter straps provide adjustable support for your babies heads and can be untied if preferred for easy breastfeeding.
This Prema Wrap is "hands-free" in half-lying or sitting position. You MUST put a hand on each baby when standing up, for protection and support.
ONE SIZE FITS ALL.
Made in Canada. Patent pending.
