Our handmade Crochet Octopus for Premature Babies can help babies adjust to their new environment.

The tentacles remind premature babies of their umbilical cord and the soft body of our pals is similar to the texture inside the womb. This makes poorly babies feel safe and secure. Not only that, but babies who have an Octopus Pal are also less likely to pull out their monitors and tubes.

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 heartbeatsbetter breathing, and higher levels of oxygen in their blood.

Our preemie size is perfect for tiny fingers.

Important: Safe sleep recommendations advise against putting anything in the crib with your infant. You should definitely check with your doctor before use.

    My daughter really loved her Octopus Pal, it stopped her from getting in trouble with the NICU nurses for pulling at her tubes! It’s a great comforter and helps to soothe her to sleep.
