Skin-to-skin should continue well beyond the hospital stay; the recommendation is to do as much skin-to-skin, as often as possible in the first weeks/months of life. We encourage this healthy behaviour to achieve the best possible outcomes for babies and their families, and Joeyband® can help.
Once the baby has outgrown skin-to-skin (around 3-4 months, they will get too squirmy), there are other ways to use the product, and get the most out of your Joeyband®:
*Baby MUST have full neck/head control prior to moving on to alternate uses
Joeyband® is not for co-sleeping, and is not a carrier.
