Idea to use instead of standard bonding square, made in matching pairs, first one worn next to Mum’s skin, then left with baby in NICU and Mum puts second next to skin, then can swap leaving Mum’s scent with baby for comfort

Size at largest points are 5” by 5”

Soft yarn is recommended and Preemie skin is very delicate

Made as matching pairs
