We believe every baby is, “Born to be kuddled.” Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome occurs in newborns, as a result of a mother’s drug use during pregnancy. As a volunteer “Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Cuddler” at a leading Medical Center, I see the need for our products constantly.
I submitted my first utility patent for the "NICU KUDDLER," used to help soothe drug dependent babies, who are suffering from withdrawal symptoms. I also created a consumer version for all babies. Witnessing these babies firsthand during my own pregnancy hospitalization, I saw they needed extra love and attention. We will continue to innovate, and help make the start of these babies lives better!
WHAT IS NEONATAL ABSTINENCE SYNDROME?
(NAS) is a group of problems that occur in a newborn who was exposed to addictive opiate drugs while in the mother's womb. The numbers of babies born dependent on drugs continue to increase in the US and around the world. These babies have sensory issues, which require additional care while in the hospital and afterward. Some of the symptoms of NAS are sensitivity to light, touch, and sound, upset stomach, fever, constant high pitch crying, tremors and seizures, strong reflexes, etc.
