Octopus Pals creates handmade crochet bonding squares for premature babies. These are handmade from 100% cotton here in the UK, soft and delicate they make a great comforter for small babies.

Our crochet bonding squares are intended to help families with babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to bond with their babies through smell which is one of the most developed senses in premature infants.

Often when families are apart like this, it is a very difficult time and parents can feel helpless and detached from their babies. The baby bonding squares help create a continuous connection between baby and family.

One square is placed with the baby and the other with the family. These are then swapped over so that smells are shared between baby and family. This can be a great comfort to both sides and it means that bonding can take place even if families can’t be with baby all the time.
