Morning all - I’m just listening to Woman’s Hour on Radio 4 talking about how prem babies benefit from having an octopus to cuddle while they’re in hospital. Apparently they hang onto the tentacles and cuddle them, and it prevents them from clutching their tubes, etc. Hospitals need hundreds of them every week, and they all have to go through testing to make sure they are safe - but it made me wonder if it might be something one (or some) of you might be able to make for sale? Parents and family like to give them to their babies too, and I would have thought its not just something prem babies would like to cuddle? Little hands around tentacles makes a lot of sense: easier than a teddy etc… so I’d have thought any newborn would like one as well as prem babies?
Sorry if I’m the last to know about this and you all already know! (In which case ignore me and pretend this post never happened… )
Have a google perhaps and listen to the interview (just this second finished) x
