Tiny Baby Bonding Blankets

Tiny Baby Bonding Blanket

For premature babies in hospital Neonatal & Infant Intensive Care Units (NICU).
Scroll down for pattern & instructions.

We recommend that these be given to moms and dads when their baby will be in the hospital for extended time. The blanket should be worn against the parent’s skin and then left with the baby so (he or she) can become familiar with parents by sense of smell. This simple way to be as “together” as possible is comforting and reassuring for both parents and baby.

Please contact your local Infant ICU to see if this product is needed locally and for any specific requirements they might have.

  1. If you make two of these, (I knit mine) baby keeps one, mama keeps one. When mama comes back to the hospital they switch blankets. Baby can smell mama and it helps baby to thrive and be soothed. Mama can smell her baby and it will help her with lactation if she is pumping. She, of course, will was them as needed.
