Skin-to-skin contact from birth promotes the onset of lactation and stimulates the production of mother's after-birth hormones. For the baby, it stabilizes his/her temperature, gives a stimulus for breastfeeding, a soothing and safe contact and obviously the start of real attachment with his/her new parents.
Vija Designs helps mothers increase skin to skin time with baby with their kangaroo tops. The Kangaroo Tshirt is really three solutions in one shirt. Worn alone, it acts as a postpartum support garment or a convenient nursing shirt. Place baby in the shirt for hands-free skin-to-skin baby wearing until the baby is 15lbs (about 2-3months).
You can easily slip Baby in, as with any other stretch wrap. The stretchy side shirring adds comfort to mother and baby. Baby’s back and bum are supported by 3 strips of fabric for a strong tight fit. Baby can safely fall asleep, thanks to the "head restraint" system (stretch neckline facings above baby's head).
Another big advantage, this t-shirt allows a quick and discreet breastfeeding without holes or slits, even for twins synchronized for lunch! You can therefore appreciate it throughout the nursing period – even long after Junior is too heavy for the integrated carrier.
WHAT IS SKIN-TO-SKIN (KANGAROO CARE)?
It is carrying the newborn baby on yourself (vertically), skin against skin (baby with diaper, of course!). We can practice skin-to-skin at the hospital at birth or at home afterwards. It is suggested to practice several times a day (about 1 hour) decreasing slowly until about 3 months. Of course, until few years ago (before we created that collection), it was difficult to practice skin-to-skin in public ...
... Until a new mother of a premature baby and experienced Utility Fashion Designer decides to make life easier for all other new moms by creating the VIJA DESIGN "Skin to skin » Kangaroo garments*.
