Primarily our tiny Miniboos are being used with babies who are born too soon. They are part of the developmental care programme on the NICU or SCBU in UK hospitals. When babies are in the incubators, and poorly, it is advised not to over handle. This means mummies and daddies cannot always have those precious cuddles that help with the important parent/baby bonding process. This is where Miniboo & Cuskiboos come in.. Mummy keeps Miniboo on her person to pick up all those lovely mummy smells and then places it next to baby in the incubator, baby can smell mummy and keep swapping the 2 Miniboos so mummy can smell baby too, which in turn, if breast feeding, will help the milk flow. Research from midwives have also noted Miniboo has helped lower baby's blood pressure. Can also be used with twins that have been separated.
