November is March of Dimes Prematurity Awareness Month
Give One Get One Purple Kangaroo Promotion
In honor of World Prematurity Day, help a family with a baby in a newborn intensive care unit (NICU).
Purchase two limited edition purple kangaroos for just $25, including shipping. We'll send you one to keep and the second to a family in the NICU. By sending a plush beanie, you help spread the word about the important health benefits of kangaroo care. You also bring a little bit of comfort to a family during one of the most difficult times in their lives.
Kangaroo care is something very special that parents can provide for their babies. It’s the practice of holding a baby skin-to-skin on the mother’s or father’s bare chest, which can help regulate a baby’s heart and breathing rates, and help the baby keep warm, gain weight and have a better chance of successful breastfeeding. Kangaroo care has benefits for parents, too. It builds confidence, helps them feel a part of their baby’s care and helps them begin to bond with their baby.
Thank you for supporting the March of Dimes NICU Family Support® program and helping us promote the benefits of kangaroo care.
