Snuggle Squares

Snuggle Squares

Emmy's Snuggle Squares are used for "bonding" in the NICU.


Bonding squares are intended to help NICU families bond with their baby(ies) through smell—one of the most developed senses in premature infants. One bonding square can be worn against the parent’s skin, and one can be left with the baby in the isolette. 

Each day, the squares can be swapped so that the baby has the parent’s scent and the parent has the baby’s scent.


It can be incredibly meaningful to take “a piece” of your baby home with you each day, and possible benefits include bonding and improved lactation.


    The bonding squares come in sets of two.  They are 5.5 x 5.5 inch squares made of 100% soft, acrylic yarn. 

    When choosing quantity keep in mind they come in sets so if you choose "1" you will receive "2" squares.

    All of the bonding squares are handmade with love by me, a mom of preemie triplets, in a smoke free and clean environment.

    A Perfect, thoughtful gift for a preemie or newborn in the NICU.

    These are a great companion to an Octopus for a preemie,
