A multi-functional blanket for premature babies
Swaddling blanket ‘Hugsy’ stimulates and facilitates the Kangaroo Mother Care on the incubator ward. Hugsy helps mothers keep their babies close to their chest during examinations, resulting in less baby stress. In the incubator, Hugsy plays recordings of mum’s heartbeat, while baby is comforted with mum’s smell.
