|Project Summary||Project Information|
Skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding are extremely beneficial practices during the beginning of a newborn’s life promoting proper emotional and physical development. In order to accomplish both of these tasks simultaneously it is necessary create a hands-free support of the baby that will offer a parent range of motion to perform simple tasks.
Our main goal is to develop a garment in conjunction with UR Medicine Golisano Children's Hospital that will provide skin-to-skin contact between a NICU baby and parent for an allotted period of time. The device will be easily removable and non-restrictive in nature encouraging interaction with the infant and activities such as pumping breast milk while allowing for the baby to be connected to vital monitoring.
