Our Ollie & Olivia Octopus Loveys - Especially for NICU & Fresh 48
We are excited to introduce our brand new super sweet little additions to the Every Bit of Sunshine family. Meet Ollie & Olivia, our octopus loveys for your NICU sweetie.
As a fellow NICU momma, making our little ones feel comfortable & secure is very important to me. Each one is handmade with care, we follow strict guidelines for their tentacle length, yarn & hypoallergenic filling.
I first learned about the benefits when I read an article from CNN (linked below).
They shared some of the benefits such as: "With the octopi, some babies in the NICU experienced better breathing and more regular heartbeats, leading to higher levels of oxygen in their blood, hospital staff said." & "What's comforting about these octopi are their soft tentacles, which hospital staff say remind babies of the umbilical cord and their mother's womb. They found that babies cuddling an octopus are less likely to pull out their monitors and tubes."
"Babies are active inside their mothers and constantly interacting with the placenta," says Dr. Valencia Walker, an associate professor at UCLA and the medical director of NICU at the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center."
Since this is a very dear cause to our hearts we are offering these FREE to all of our past & new customers! Contact us for an exclusive discount code & all you will pay is the S&H!
We know that the NICU is often an unexpected situation & we hope this helps to comfort your little sweetie.
As a photographer, sometimes babies that are scheduled for a newborn session end up visiting the NICU first. This will make a great gift to send until they can come see you for their session. They also make wonderful Fresh 48 gifts!
~ Like with all items you bring to the NICU please make sure to check that they are allowed, each hospital is different & do not leave our loveys in your baby's bed unattended.
