Care of Small Babies: Wrap Designs for Skin-to-Skin Care

Video summary

There are many ways to make a wrap to carry the baby skin-to-skin, from a length of locally available cloth to a custom-made pouch. All wraps work well as long as the baby is held securely between the mother’s breasts, it supports the baby’s head tilted up slightly to allow him to breathe freely and the wrap lets the mother move about easily with both hands free. This video shows examples of several wraps used around the world.

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.
