I'm writing this series of posts on Kangaroo Care (KC) with dear and beautiful family, friends, and clients in mind. These are the things that I wish that I had known about kangaroo care for full term infants from the beginning. KC is SO IMPORTANT, mothers and babies have magically sensitive skin that gives many special benefits to both mother and baby for at least the first 9-12 months postpartum. Besides the post partum mother, other caregivers can share benefits with baby through skin to skin contact too.
Find out more about the medical benefits of kangaroo care here.
