This weekend I found that my life was completely saved by the NuRoo Pocket. Our A/C was broken for three days, and even though for the rest of the U.S. it is winter and that wouldn’t be much of a problem, it’s still hot here in Miami! It was a stagnant 78 degrees in our house, so I knew I had to get out of there with the dog and the baby until the air got fixed. Thankfully, my in-laws were so hospitable and allowed us to crash at their place during the day and at night. They had a travel crib and changing table, but during the day I used the NuRoo Packet, which allows you to spend more time skin-to-skin with baby.
The NuRoo Pocket is designed to go on like a shirt and eliminates wrapping, tying and knotting to make babywearing a breeze. I have seen other moms use wraps and it just looked so complicated to me, not to mention time consuming to go on and take off. It is also incredibly soft with the use of flat lock, seamless stitching. The fabric is designed to create a compression ﬁt that hugs baby to your skin, recreating that womb-like, “held” feeling that soothes + supports your baby, making them feel safe + secure. Another plus to the fabric (and the hot hot weather down here) is that it is breatheable and moisture wicking, and never feels sweaty or wet. Lastly, it allows mommy (or daddy) to be completely hands free and completely comfortable. I almost felt as if I was pregnant again because of how close I was able to be with Rose! It was a great experience that we both loved.
The NuRoo Pocket is great for mommies and babies too – there is so much science to back up the benefits of skin-to-skin interaction. The beneﬁts are so important for your little one’s development, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends daily skin-to-skin sessions throughout the ﬁrst three months of your baby’s life. To receive all the beneﬁts, mom + baby need to stay skin-to-skin for 60 uninterrupted minutes. Mom life is a busy life, and ﬁnding 60 minutes to lay in bed or on the couch, cuddled skin-to-skin is diﬃcult to do!
