CarePlus is a pre-term wrap designed to help parents provide continuous and quality skin-to-skin care to their newborns.

The ergonomic wrap design keeps the baby securely in place with little strain on the shoulders and back of the parent.

  • Made of cotton, reusable after wash.
  • Easy-to-use: Does not require an assistant to put on.
  • Gender-neutral: Acceptable to wear by fathers as well as mothers.
  • Designed for easy breastfeeding without removing newborn from thermal care.
  • Allows unrestricted movement and causes minimal fatigue in the back and shoulders of the carrier.
  • There are no knots in the back, so it is comfortable for the carrier to use while sitting or lying down.
  • Safe for the baby: Keeps the baby secure in the correct position for providing effective skin-to-skin care.
  • Can use with PreemieNatalie Preterm Simulator to practice essential newborn care and Kangaroo Mother Care.
