The Benjamin Boundy
The Benjamin Boundy has been specially developed for the term born sick baby and is suitable for the more mature premature who has outgrown the nest, but still needs protection and support. The Benjamin Boundy offers the possibility to position the baby in a midline orientation. This midline orientation promotes hand-to-mouth contact and hand-to-hand contact, making the baby feel more comfortable and better able to self-regulate. Because the hands are nog covered, the baby is able to spontaneously touch the face.
The Benjamin Boundy consists of a water-removable inner roll filled with granules, and a separate, washable cover. The flexible inner roll of the Benjamin Boundy makes it possible to shape the roll in such a way that the baby can be supported in every position. It is recommended to use 2 Benjamin Boundys in the supine and prone position for optimal support. The ends of the Benjamin Boundy are there to support the baby where necessary, but also to position it optimally. It can be placed around the head, neck or hips or placed under/against an arm or leg. For the prone and supine position, it is recommended to use 2 Benjamin Boundys, in order to provide enough resistance. In the supine position, the ends can be used to position the head in the correct position. The ends of the Benjamin Boundy can also be placed on top the baby for a short period of time. This way they act as an extra “hand” during procedures to provide support from above.
