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.
