The WHO confirms what we already know! Kangaroo care is critical!

 

Kangaroo care shirts for men can really help out. Especially at the time of birth. We all know that the mother participates in kangaroo care while nursing and have tended to take care of the kangaroo care duties. We know now that, because this is so important, and does affect the baby and the father as well, we believe getting dad involved from the start is critical. 

 

Now the WHO is saying that kangaroo care can significantly improve outcomes of underweight and premature babies as well. 

According to the WHO, research has shown that skin-to-skin care, INCLUDING early, prolonged skin-to-skin contact with either father or mother, plus exclusive breastfeeding, can: 

 

•reduce infant mortality by as much as 40%, 

•can reduce severe infections by 65% 

•reduce hypothermia by more than 70%. 

 

These are groundbreaking statistics and prove yet again that kangaroo care shirts for dad can really help out with a new little baby. They make an excellent addition to any baby shower or hospital go bag! They make Dad feel more a part of the process and provide him with a modest way to keep his shirt on in the hospital and at home.
