Care of Small Babies: Continuous Skin-to-Skin Care

Video summary

A small baby held continuously in skin-to-skin contact, often known as kangaroo care, is kept warm, safe from infection, and will likely breastfeed sooner. This video shows how to help a mother position her baby, secure him safely in a wrap, and care for the needs of her baby and herself while in continuous skin-to-skin contact.

Global Health Media Project’s Small Baby Series includes 27 teaching videos, providing in-depth coverage on best-practice care of babies born too small or too soon. See summary info here for more information. 

Available in Arabic, Bangla, Burmese, English, French, Hindi, Kinyarwanda, Nepali, Spanish, and Tanzania Swahili.
