In our episode, we continue our discussion on kangaroo care by addressing some of the common barriers to kangaroo care and why it may not always be encouraged sooner. We review ways to minimize some of the common obstacles NICUs encounter that may prevent daily kangaroo care for parents. We discuss the assessment for readiness of the infant, parents, and unit for daily skin-to-skin care followed by a review of common limiting factors that may prevent an infant from being able to do kangaroo care due their clinical condition and/or lines and equipment. 

Finally, I review step-by-step guides for kangaroo care including how to prepare each time and the different transfer methods commonly used. Finally, I offer my top tip on how to pump while doing kangaroo care so it does not inhibit your time to hold your baby skin-to-skin. So get ready and let’s continue our discussion on kangaroo care in the NICU!
