Long-Faced Bear / Communication products

Long-Faced Bear
Long-Faced Bear

About 15 million premature babies are born globally every year, and one in seven newborns is premature. They need to be sent to NICU. Take special care. My parents were sent home to feel helpless. This separation may last for weeks or even months. Long-Faced Bear allows parents to feel their children close when they are separated. Their children can be felt to talk to them from anywhere at any time. This kind of contact and communication reduces parents' anxiety, adding links between babies and parents. In addition, parents' voices have been shown to reduce the stress and pain of the child during the medical process.
