When we were transferred to the Owen Sound hospital (which was closer to home), we found that the NICU there did not have the same kind of chairs that promoted Kangaroo time. Although we continued to try to do skin to skin as often as possible, we were in straight back chairs and body parts would quickly become sore, numb and in pain.
To pay it forward to other NICU parents, I am hoping to raise money to purchase a second reclining "Kangaroo Time" chair for the Owen Sound NICU. These chairs are extremely expensive due to hospital sanitation protocol, which is why the goal is $5100.00. My hope is that some other parent who is lost and scared will have something good to focus on as they spend those hours skin to skin snuggling their little tiny new humans.
