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.
