NüRoo Debuts New, First-of-Its-Kind NüRoo Pocket A Babywearing Shirt

Company Launches Unique Product Designed Specifically for Skin-to-Skin Contact

(Barrington, RI) January 2013 – NüRoo introduces the first and only babywearing shirt, The NüRoo Pocket, that offers convenience, comfort and fashion for moms practicing Skin-to-Skin contact with their newborns. The NüRoo Pocket affords mom the time to spend Skin-to-Skin by ensuring their baby remains in the optimal position, while providing her with stylish coverage, and hands free mobility.

Skin-to-Skin contact, also referred to as Kangaroo Care, is a holding technique where baby wears only a diaper, and is positioned vertically on mom’s bare chest, creating chest-to-chest contact. Over 40 years of research has proven that in the early months of life, Skin-to-Skin contact creates remarkable benefits for both mom and baby. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) suggests skin-to-skin contact begin immediately after delivery until completion of the first breastfeeding and is encouraged throughout the postpartum period. When practiced for an uninterrupted 60 minutes, Skin-to-Skin can help accelerate baby’s brain development, reduce crying + colic, enhance their immunity, improve their quality of sleep and more.  There are advantages for mom too, as it speeds her recovery time, increases her milk production and reduces the risk for postpartum depression.

“We fell in love with Skin-to-Skin contact after being introduced to the benefits by our nurse midwives. Coming home from the hospital to active families didn’t allow for the time to lay with baby Skin-to-Skin. After searching high and low for a product that offered coverage and mobility and coming up empty handed, the idea for The NüRoo Pocket was born,” said Daniela Jensen and Hope Parish, co-founders of NüRoo.
