Hugsy

Hugsy is a swaddling blanket that simulates and facilitates Kangaroo Care (KC), a method of caring for a premature baby in which the infant is held in skin-to-skin contact with a parent for as long as possible each day.

The Hugsy positioning bags hold the baby in place on the parent’s chest during a KC session. In addition, the parent’s heartbeat is recorded and played back later and their scent is absorbed into the Hugsy fabric for greater comfort.
