Did you know that all babies - premature and full term alike - develop best when they are safe and sound in their parent's arms? During skin-to-skin cuddling sessions, known as Kangaroo Care, parent and baby co-regulate their temperature, breathing and heart rate. Nothing works better, and its benefits are proven: improved bonding, better brain development, reduced stress, reduced crying, deeper sleep, and better immunity, just to name a few!

The Hugsy Home Care line makes the benefits of a parent’s embrace last longer, to provide comfort to babies even when their parents cannot be nearby.

The Hugsy Pouch, a snug Kangaroo Care swaddle, and the Hugsy Cuddle, a cuddle toy for older babies and toddlers, capture a parent's warmth and scent. The Hugsy Heartbeat records  a parent's unique and familiar heartbeat, and plays it back to their baby when they can't be with their little one. Hugsy’s evidence-based design has won several design awards and is already being used in Dutch hospitals during clinical trials and in homes.

Hugsy Pouch (0-4 months)

The Hugsy Pouch is a snug swaddling blanket used to support kangaroo care cuddle sessions, and prolong the benefits even when you can't be near. The organic textile absorbs your scent when cuddling, and together with the Hugsy Heartbeat, provides your scent, heartbeat, and feeling of support in the crib. 

Hugsy Cuddle (0-4 years)

A product for older babies and toddlers that keeps your little one nice and comfortable. The detachable body can be used as a scent-cloth, and the Hugsy Heartbeat fits snuggly in the little bear's head. Provides your soothing scent and heartbeat 24/7.

Hugsy Heartbeat

The Hugsy Heartbeat is a smart heartbeat recording device. Just put the finger sensor on during a relaxed moment, and the Hugsy Heartbeat records your heartbeat, and then reproduces your unique heartbeat sound and vibration for your little one.

I think the Hugsy definitely has benefits, especially in the development of the little one. If you think about the heartbeat and the smell, I truly believe this can have a positive effect on the baby’s development.

My son was way calmer when wearing the Hugsy swaddling blanket. Not only during skin-to-skin care, but also when he was back in his crib.
