Our newest teaching films bring to life the life-saving practice of continuous skin-to-skin care—a key element of Kangaroo care—to support its widespread implementation as a standard of care for small babies and newborns.

Continuous Skin-to-Skin Care shows how to position the baby, secure her safely in a wrap, and care for her needs while in continuous skin-to-skin contact. This video is adapted for mothers and caregivers in Carrying Your Baby Skin-to-Skin. Examples of several wraps used around the world are demonstrated in Wrap Designs for Skin-to-Skin Care.

Last week we published three important films on keeping small babies warm, protecting them from infection, and establishing and maintaining a good milk supply to meet their needs.  All of our films on the care of small babies can be accessed at this LINK.
