Skin to Skin Care: Beyond the NICU
Out of desperation to improve the morbidity and mortality rates of premature infants in Bogota, Colombia, innovative neonatologists developed the concept of kangaroo care . Since then, it has been modified to skin to skin care in NICU’s across the world. In recent years, the benefits of this care have been demonstrated and extended toward use in the full-term infant. With a fresh perspective, application of principles from infant development, anatomy, and physiology, are integrated to realize advantages of incorporating skin to skin through 12 weeks of age. When done correctly, skin to skin time serves as tummy time, minimizes the incidence and severity of acquired plagiocephaly, and provides a gentle treatment for torticollis. Learn how to engage, educate, and empower new families to succeed with this breastfeeding friendly intervention.
