THE MOST ORGANIC
THING YOU CAN DO
IS TRUST IN LIFE!
The skin-to-skin baby tube comes as close as possible to total skin-to-skin contact, and its envelope acts like a second maternal skin by keeping the infant in a cradle of nourishing warmth and soothing well-being.
Skin-to-skin contact is a natural technique that reassures the baby, promotes latching onto the breast, and lowers post-natal stress in both the infant and the mother who then produces oxytocin, the soothing hormone.
More proficient at the breast, both the baby and the parent, snuggled in the same warmth, sleep more easily and restfully.
Breathing and heart rate are calmed, which is probably why skin-to-skin babies cry ten times less than babies that are dressed, and in cots!
The skin-to-skin baby tube naturally promotes the parent-baby bond and also has many advantages:
- Lowered risk of post-partum syndromes
- Increased lactation
- Improved recovery
- A heightened sense of parenting competence, because parenting is a profession that cannot be learned!
Skin-to-skin contact, or the kangaroo mother care, is encouraged as soon as the baby’s condition permits. It is also increasingly practised in neonatal services and recommended by medical authorities.
The premature baby without breathing difficulties, skin-to-skin, will better regulate their temperature, stabilise or decrease their oxygen needs, experience more restorative rest, promote the development of their nervous and digestive system and reduce the stressors related to the trauma of their rapid arrival the world.
The mother, for her part, feels the same beneficial effects; she is no longer just touching her baby in the incubator but is carrying it against her, nourishing it more efficiently and naturally diffusing protective well-being into a reciprocal cocoon.
