offers support and restriction for premature, dysmature and sick babies

Benjamin Comfynest

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.

Advantages:

  • 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.

Practical information

  • Available in two sizes: size Small (500-1500 grams) and size Large (1500-2500 grams).
  • Has an inside roller which can be wiped off with water, is filled with grains, and has a separate washable cover.
  • There is anti-slip material at the bottom of the parts.
  • The outside covers are made of an advanced technical fabric consisting of a mix of polyester and cotton. This fabric dries four times as fast as cotton, does not discolour or shrink and remains odourfree.

Cooperation

The ComfyNest is developed in cooperation with NIDCAP trained specialists on the basis of the latest insights in the field of developmental care. The Benjamin ComfyNest is used in many Dutch and foreign hospitals. It is valued by professionals and parents for the quality of the materials, the comfort for the babies and its child-friendly appearance.

The Benjamin ComfyNest consists of the following parts:

The Benjamin ComfyStar

The Benjamin ComfyStar is a soft grain bag. It can be used to support the baby if necessary. It can be placed around head, neck or hips or under or against a little arm or leg. The size of the Benjamin ComfyStar can also be reduced by folding it.

The Benjamin ComfyPillow

In order to optimize a healthy growth of the head and prevent a preference position, it is important to turn the child’s head regularly. The ComfyPillow is used to keep the head in the correct position. The ComfyPillow can also support the head when the child gets artificial respiration.

The Benjamin ComfyKiss

Odour plays an essential part in mother-child bonding. The presence of the mother’s odour results in stress relief for the baby. The use of the Benjamin ComfyKiss scent pad may contribute to this. The mother or the father wears the scent pad, thus absorbing body oudor.
