Women’s shirt for infant kangaroo care Medbest “ENIA”
COMFORTABLE DESIGN, PROVIDES STABLE POSITION TO THE INFANT AND ALLOWS FOR SKIN-TO-SKIN CONTACT
Kangaroo care – a method based on placing the baby on the parent’s chest to provide it with skin-to-skin contact. Officially recommended by WHO since 2003. Very popular in Poland and abroad. Nowadays it is advisable to provide kangaroo care to all babies, not just those born prematurely.
Parents who provide kangaroo care find it easier to communicate with their baby and read the signals it uses.
It strengthens the bond with the baby and facilitates its psychomotor development.
It significantly helps to start breastfeeding and allows to prolong the exclusive breastfeeding period.
Reduces the risk of postpartum depression episodes.
Stabilises the baby’s physiological parameters (body temperature, glucose level, saturation, breath rate).
In case of children born prematurely (past the 28th week of pregnancy), constant kangaroo care eases the pain and reduces the hospital stay (on average by half).
In case of children born through C-section, skin-to-skin contact facilitates the adoption of parental microbiota, which improves the baby’s endurance and reduces the risk of developing allergies later on.
