Uninterrupted and prolonged skin to skin contact for a newborn, benefits both mother and baby by increasing breastfeeding success and confidence.
It also reduces stress for both you and your baby, stabilising baby’s temperature, blood sugars, encouraging baby to touch your skin for the first time, hear your familiar voice and feel your life-giving heartbeat. The Birth Blankie can also be helpful in the intensive care unit or nursery and during times of separation to give comfort and reassurance.
Is it just for the birth?

As baby grows, the uses of the blanket continues with them. It can be used as a wrap or cover for baby’s bassinet or a familiar comfort for a teething toddler. The scent of mother’s skin and memory of cuddles is a precious keepsake of the bonding time you share with your baby.

“I have developed the Heart2myheart Birth Blankie after many years of witnessing this baby’s heart to mother’s heart time lost through the hospital system’s pressure to perform procedures, weigh, examine, bath, wrap or separate baby from mother. There is strong evidence in research to confirm immediate, uninterrupted and prolonged skin to skin benefits both mother and baby, increasing breastfeeding success and confidence.”
