This is the term coined when a mother holds or wraps her premature baby skin to skin on her chest. Instead of constant care in an incubator more and more doctors are encouraging mothers to wear their tiny infants (such as in the Boba Baby Wrap Upright Newborn/Infant Hold). These babies thrive with access to food, warmth and the familiar environment of the womb. For more info check out our Kangaroo Mother Care page.
