Workshop on babywearing and bonding for premature babies
Premature and chronically ill babies want to and should be carried. Bodily contact is good for them and strengthens the parent-child bond. Our workshop will equip you to effectively integrate babywearing for tiny ones into your work.
In this workshop, IBCLC and EFNB-certified paediatric nurse Eva Vogelgesang shares in detail her experiences in neonatal units. You’ll learn all you need to know about kangaroo care and the use of DIDYMOS kangaroo slings. You’ll also become familiarized with the individual carrying positions and our range of baby carriers.
- What is a premature baby? What does this mean for the child and her parents?
- Slideshow, including case studies and special situations from 35 years of working in neonatal units
- The importance of intensive bodily contact, and, in particular, babywearing from the perspective of the child, parents, hospital, and society
- The physiological and psychological impact of skin-on-skin contact and bonding
- The special requirements for carrying premature babies in the hospital and at home
We show you
- our DIDYMOS kangaroo sling, which greatly simplifies babywearing and bonding in a hospital context
