Why we love them
Each pack contains one miniboo.
Miniboo are the tiny version of Cuskiboo: the supersoft comforter with the scientific backing! The snuggly nature of these comforters appeals to babies’ sensory way of experiencing and replicates a carer’s loving touch. The Cuski Comforter shape is based on human form, which is scientifically shown to increase the likelihood of babies attaching to it as a parent substitute to help them to stay calm. The bamboo fabric is absorbent, which helps it to take on your smell, giving your baby you when you can’t be there.
These comforters are extremely safe as bamboo is both breathable, so does not pose a smothering risk, and is a very hygienic fabric. These comforters are even allowed in NHS NICUs and have their own NHS protocol.
What Cuski say
Miniboos are used in many SCBUs and are an excellent item to promote and maintain bonding in some of the most challenging of special circumstances. They carry the scent of the baby to the parents, and of the parents to the baby. This can help mothers who are expressing milk for a baby in hospital, even when they cannot be near the baby all the time. You can read more about the use of MiniBoos in SCBUs and neonatal units here.
NOTE: We would highly recommend that when buying any comforter from anywhere you always buy three. You will need to wash them and if your baby or child, as they grow, needs it to sleep, that is a stress you don’t need. So, from a great deal of experienced upset, have one with baby, one in the wash and one snuggled up with you to return it to smelling right for your little one.
Gold Award 2013 ~ Miniboo is brand new to Cuski! Primarily our tiny Miniboos are being used with babies who are born too soon. They are part of the developmental care program on the NICU or SCBU in UK hospitals with NHS protocol. When babies are in the incubators, and poorly, it is advised not to over handle. This means mummies and daddies cannot always have those precious cuddles that help with the important parent/baby bonding process. This is where Miniboo & Cuskiboos come in.. Mummy keeps Miniboo on her person to pick up all those lovely mummy smells and then places it next to baby in the incubator, baby can smell mummy and keep swapping so mummy can smell baby too, which in turn, if breast feeding, will help the milk flow.
