Head - Neonatal Intensive Care
Ospedale Santa Croce, Moncalieri (Torino)
Since May 2012, the Department of Pediatrics-Neonatal Intensive Care of the Santa Croce Hospital in Moncalieri, which I direct, has started a collaboration with MHUG aimed at the implementation and facilitation of Baby Carrier Therapy in our department. The project consists in a training for the operators of the NICU and in the supply of specific bands for premature babies in bamboo fiber designed together with MHUG on the basis of indications provided by us. MHUG accepted our proposals with enthusiasm and produced new bands that facilitate skin-to-skin contact between mother and child. The mothers have accepted and appreciated them and, therefore, we have been using them routinely since mid-August. In the ward we encourage the practice of baby carrier therapy from the first days of life of premature babies, as soon as the clinical conditions of the babies allow it.

At one time it was believed that newborns, being devoid of "experience" were simply governed by primary needs such as being fed or sleeping. Today, the theory of the child learning only through experience is totally outdated and it is known that emotions are innate, programmed. The maternal uterus is a protected, warm and reassuring environment and is the first place where the fetus becomes aware and begins to experiment the use of the senses. There are innumerable mechanisms that allow this, but of fundamental importance is the need for CONTAINMENT and security. The first months of life represent the first direct physical and emotional contact with the outside world. All the senses are strongly stimulated and in particular the sense of touch. In the mother's belly the foetus feels enveloped by the uterine walls, cradled by the amniotic fluid. When it comes into the world, the only thing it perceives is well-being or the lack of it, and it must be remembered that inside the womb it is used to seeing all its wishes fulfilled. The MHUG baby carriers satisfy all these needs.MHUG baby carriers satisfy all these needs, allowing the mother to move freely, carrying her baby with her, trying to bring back to memory the concept of "instinct", now overwhelmed by false educational rules, such as the fear of spoiling the baby or not helping him in what will be the physiological detachment from the mother figure.

I tried the MHUG Mei Tai without looking at the instructions and I was easily able to fix it! The children loved it and fell asleep blissfully, it is really very comfortableI particularly like it because it is small and therefore easy to carry everywhere. I would recommend it to the moms I follow!

MHUG Mei Tai is really a quality purchase. Parents spend too much on useless or short-lived objects, but MHUG Mei Tai is a unique tool: it is indispensable during the first months to encourage contact and containment and is so versatile that it follows the growth of the baby for many years. Every mother should have one!

Finally, a baby carrier that- respects thephysiology of the newborn and of the child- respects the bending pattern of the newborn indispensable for its comfortable and correct development in the first months of life The MHUG baby carrier also offers excellent comfort to the mother allowing her to breastfeed comfortably.

MHUG MeiTai is a valid alternative to the baby carriers on the market because it is much lighter. It can be used for newborns for older children, on the back and on the belly. Folded can be kept comfortably in your bag. My Association has tested it and recommends it (also to grandparents, who often want to carry their grandchildren).MHUGBamboo Wrap is, in my opinion, the softest wrap on the market and the best among those for children up to 7.5 kg. Extremely light and silky to the touch, I think it is the most suitable for contact with bare skin".

I invited a Mhug-etta, who is also a pupil of "La Scuola delle Doule" to the antenatal course I lead. I was very impressed by the information she gave, for example I found that the position of the legs with the MHUGs is much better than that of the common baby carriers. We had already talked to the mothers about the importance of contact and the presentation of MHUGs came at just the right time. I was fascinated by these baby carriers and now I see babies in baby carriers on the street all the time and I want to stop these mothers and only offer them MHUG baby carriers! ”

MHUG baby carriers really do make life easier for mums because they leave their hands free and allow them to breastfeed anywhere. Days with a newborn are less stressful and the return to everyday life is quicker. That's why I suggest them to my patients".

The "CONTACT" is a manifestation of Love, it creates and nourishes the thin bond between mother and newborn... In the first days and months of life it creates the "safe base" on which the future person will rise and develop, in its affective expressions and in its social realizations. Everything that is in favour of this process, that is to say of its realisation and concretisation, must be nourished and sustained; the response that derives from it is the confirmation of its value and its sacrity".
