This comfortable and casual halter neck top provides for easy all day style with supportive Skin-to-Skin/Kangaroo Care for baby. Skin-to-skin contact (kangaroo care) immediately after birth helps stabilize the temperatures of newborns and promotes the initiation of breastfeeding. Wear it when you lay by 45 degrees in bed or sitting on a chair. Allows for easy nursing whilst seated, standing or lying down for Skin-to-Skin/Kangaroo Care whilst using hands to support as needed.

The Kangaroo tube with halter strap is made from a soft, lightweight and stretchy cotton/spandex blend jersey for additionnal comfort for mom and baby - and is flexible enough so that baby can move and seek for the breast. Semi-side seams with elastic shirring prevents baby from slipping sideways and follow the shape of the baby without unnecessary pressure. The double band at the bottom and inner support to the buttocks/lower back prevents baby from slipping down.

Simply slide the halter straps over the head to breastfeed easily. The halter strap provides additional support, especially if you wear your baby when sitting in a chair.

VIJA DESIGN garments were developed by Fashion Utility Designer Vivianne Brault who was inspired by her own experience of Kangaroo Mother Care and Skin-to-Skin Contact with her preterm baby. She developed the garments in collaboration with ergonomists and neonatal care specialists, nurses and paediatricians. All garments are manufactured ethically in Canada and are fabric tested to ensure zero heavy metal contamination. 

Kangaroo Care (or) Kangaroo Mother Care

Kangaroo Care (KC) or Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) as it is also known, was developed by Edgar Rey in 1978 in Bogota Columbia and was originally designed to allow mothers of Low Birth Weight (LBW) babies to care for them in the absence of incubators. The method has since then been developed to become an extremely powerful and beneficial practise for the care and development of all newborn babies whether preterm, low birth weight or healthy full term.

The major component of KMC is Skin-to-Skin Contact (SSC) in which infants dressed only in a nappy are placed vertically between the mother's breasts, below her clothes and directly on her skin. KMC can also include (whenever possible) exclusive or almost exclusive breastfeeding (which the practise itself makes easier). KMC can be practised continuously over long periods of time or can take place intermittently (at least 60 minutes at a time is recommended to achieve the maximum benefits). KMC can start immediately post birth and continue until the infant is around 15 lbs/6.8kg. Fathers may also participate with the baby placed on their chest directly on their skin under their clothes. 

  • Has proven highly positive effects on infant development both physical and mental.
  • Contributes to the establishment and longer duration of breastfeeding.
  • Enhances bonding and attachment.
  • Significantly reduces incidence and severity of maternal postpartum depression symptoms.
  • Enhances infant physiologic stability (temperature stabilising, heartbeat and breathing stabilising, promotes deeper sleep/better sleep organisation).
  • Reduces pain during procedures.
  • Reduces incidences of severe infections and shortens hospital stays.
  • Increases parental sensitivity to infant cues.
  • Enhances infant/parent interaction.

What Exactly are the Benefits of KMC and how do they Work?

Many medical studies have been performed to establish exactly what the benefits of Kangaroo Mother Care are for both mother and baby (preterm and full term). These studies have consistently proven immense benefits and demonstrated exactly what those benefits are and how they happen - click here to find out more.
