Supporting neonatal units, babies and their families who are unable to be together

Having a baby can be a truly frightening time for both new and seasoned parents. However, nothing prepares you for having your baby needing help in the first few hours, days or months. 

Our Baby snuggle packs are provided to ensure that each new baby has a  few essentials to get started. 

Parents can gain comfort knowing that their baby will have some items of their own and a memory to keep forever.

your babies snuggle pack will contain *:

  • a blanket
  • booties/socks
  • a hat
  • a knitted toy to hold
  • 2 bonding squares to keep with them and you. These ensure that your baby gets to know you by smell.

*every item cannot be guaranteed in each pack
