The Kangaroo Top
Skin-to-skin contact has been scientifically proven to have many health benefits for both baby and parent. The advice of the World Health Organization is: “skin-to-skin contact, as early, as long and as uninterrupted as possible for every newborn”.
The Kangaroo Top is a tool that facilitates this special contact. The Kangaroo Top is an upper body support band for the upper body of an adult to position a baby up to 5 kg in order to establish skin-to-skin contact between the parent and child. The Kangaroo Top is intended to be attached to the parent/carer after birth in a hospital or after a home birth. Never walk or stand while wearing the Kangaroo Top with baby, it is not a baby carrier. The Kangaroo Top is only suitable for lying or sitting to support the baby on the chest. The Kangaroo Top is suitable for both hospital and home use.
