Research has proven that premature babies better regulate body temperatures in a nest, which leads to an imporved growth. The restriction provided by the nest has a positive effect on respiration and emotional rest. Positioning and restriction limit stress, and stimulates healthy sleeping behaviour as well as neurological development. The Benjamin ComfyNest, and its matching accessories, were developed to position, support and restrict the premature baby or a baby with low birth weight in various positions. The ComfyNest offers the possibility to position the baby in a midline orientation and thus promotes hand-mouth and hand-hand contact, which will make the baby feel more comfortable and, consequently, better capable of self-regulation. In the ComfyNest a baby can be weighed, moved, examined and transported, restricting stress to a minimum.
- The flexible and smooth inside roller makes it possible to easily reduce or increase the nest.
- The four straps offer ample opportunity to support the baby in the correct position and offers restriction from above. The straps help the baby maintain the midline position. They can be attached both straight and crossed around the baby and the nest.
