Usually, premature babies are cared for with the help of an incubator . The therapy pouch serves as a substitute for this practice. In fact, in Latin America, it was born in hospitals precisely because of the lack of the machinery in question.

The mother’s body heat, combined with contact with the skin, naturally simulates the work of an incubator. Among the benefits of performing Kangaroo mother care in a premature baby we find the reduction of hospitalization times and the increase in the chances of survival in the most extreme cases.

The duration of the sessions has a variable duration and changes from newborn to newborn. Although on average 50-minute sessions take place, it is always good to contact a doctor for personalized advice.
