Carrying your premature (premature) baby

When is your baby premature?

A normal pregnancy lasts 40 weeks. When your baby is born earlier than the 37th week of pregnancy, we call it a premature or premature baby. A premature baby is a lot lighter and smaller than a full-term baby averaging 3,500 grams.

Kangarooing or pouching with your premature baby

Once a premature or premature baby is discharged from the hospital, they are often still too small for a sling or baby carrier. Therefore, it is best to pouch your premature baby. Kangarooing or pouching is a way you can have physical contact with your premature baby. You do this by means of holding your baby close to your bare skin and carrying it that way. With this method, you can increase bonding with your newborn baby and also reduce stress.

This is how you continue to pouch at home

Preemies are often already familiar with pouching or kangarooing from the hospital. The Womboo® Pouch Shirt allows you to carry even the tiniest of babies. So you can continue it at home with skin-to-skin contact with your baby. Through your scent, warmth and heartbeat, you create peace for both you and the baby.
