Not only adequate, but highly recommended! Read what Meghan Bertani, a Certified Passenger Safety Technicianfrom Houston, TX says
“The Zaky (HUGs) are safe to use in car seats because they help to get the infant in the correct position so the car seat's harness straps are able to secure the infant in the seat in the best way possible... by placing a Zaky (HUG) on either side of the infant, they help to get the infant in the safest position before a crash would occur."
Absolutely, especially if they practice evidence-based developmental care.
Infection Control Departments of hundreds of hospitals have approved, used and loved The Zaky HUG.
It replaces many other items that aren't as appropriate. A father said "stuffed animals and other items are (there) to make the parents feel better, The Zaky (HUG) is the only item on the bed that actually helps the baby and our bonding with him"
Please get in touch if there are issues bringing The Zaky HUGs to your hospital. We'd be happy to work our magic!
In an independent clinical study by Georgia College, babies who used The Zaky HUG were significantly more likely to have normal breathing, heart rates, and go back to calm after moments of stress than babies who didn’t.
Babies with scented Zaky HUG did best; however, babies with mother’s scent but without The Zaky HUG did not improve.
Leading us to believe that your scent amplifies but never replaces the power of your touch.
