Our handmade Crochet Octopus for Babies can help newborns adjust to their environment.
The tentacles remind babies of their umbilical cord and the soft body of our pals is similar to the texture inside the womb. This makes babies feel safe and secure.
Our baby size Octopus Pals are slightly larger than our Preemie size and are ideal for full-term newborns.
There have been several studies done on the benefits of these cuddles creatures. According to the Poole Hospital website, the idea originated in Denmark, where researchers found that preemies who cuddled up with these cute octopuses in their incubators had more regular heartbeats, better breathing, and higher levels of oxygen in their blood. Not only that, but these babies were also less likely to pull out their monitors and tubes.
This cute little Octopus makes the ideal gift for a newborn baby.
Important: Safe sleep recommendations advise against putting anything in the crib with your infant. You should definitely check with your doctor before use. Multicoloured octopus are not made from a single piece of yarn. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure these toys are safe, adult supervision is advised.
