"Because Jennifer was not able to spend all of her time with our daughter Isabella, she felt guilty leaving her behind.

She heard of a product called the Zaky HUG, and thought she would give it a try. When Jennifer would leave Isabella in the NICU, she would leave a Zaky with her scent in the crib. When we had to go home, we felt like we were leaving something human behind for her. Every time I would come in and she was having a good day, she would have her hand wrapped around the thumb and it just really made me feel good."

Michael and Jennifer Bychowsky, USA

The Bychowskys were so happy with the Zaky that they decided to purchase them for all the babies of the NICU and Nurtured by Design matched their donation 1 to 1.

"We wanted other babies and families to have that opportunity," said Jennifer. They got in touch with Nurtured by Design. and explained that they wanted to make a donation to the hospital, and the company matched their donation.
