Pollywog Baby Preemie Store - Products for Your Premature Baby

We found that many of our customers who were looking for reflux solutions had premature babies so we have expanded our product line to include some items picked specifically for your preemie. From preemie nipples and preemie bottles to preemie car seat solutions we have items others don't stock.

Zaky Hand

The Zaky Hand for preemies and micro-preemies is safe to use with infants weighing 450 grams or more in an incubator or other sleeping and care area. It provides the weight, scent, touch and feel of a parent or nurse's hands and provides the boundaries new infants need to avoid stress when moving without the confined boundaries of the womb.

Made of anti-allergenic, non-pilling and non-treated polyester fleece, it can be scented for a few hours or overnight with your scent to promote bonding and develop security even when you cannot visit or hold your preemie.

The perfect way for you or a nurse to calm and soothe your preemie while providing the security and boundaries he needs to thrive.

RESQ Wedge

The RESQ wedge was developed by a therapist, dietician and pediatrician in response to increased cases of plagiocephaly, torticollis and shoulder retraction they were seeing.

The wedge was very thoughtfully designed with a dedicated tummy side and back side. Angled cuts on the tummy side make the wedge the same shape as a mother's chest, allowing the shoulders to stretch while your premature baby's neck relaxes slightly downward rather than arching up. A molded nest on the back side of the wedge prevents flat head syndrome, torticollis, and provides a shelf to prevent your preemie from feeling suspended on the wedge.

Both sides encourage good muscle flexion to encourage your premature baby's muscles to develop even when resting on the wedge. A Pollywog Favorite!

Tucker Sling - Tucker Wedge

The Tucker Sling and Tucker Wedge were developed by two mothers of babies with reflux to ease their babies symptoms. A safe and secure way to keep your premature baby in an elevated position without fear of them sliding down. Upright positioning is critical for preventing frightening apnea, congestion and reflux episodes that shorten sleep cycles.

The attached harness is secure yet easy to get your baby into and out of quickly and can be machine washed.

Infant Feeding Wedge Pillow

The Pollywog infant feeding wedge is designed to improve digestion and reduce spit-ups - something critical for preemies who need every single calorie. The combination of straight spine and incline means more food enters the premature baby's intestines during feeds and there is less in the tummy to come back up later.

This is a great positioning device for breast or bottle feeding a NICU preemie. It's especially helpful in the NICU environment because most moms breastfeeding a preemie in a NICU environment are in upright chairs rather than lying in bed. The adjustable height makes it easy to get your premature baby closer to your nipple for an easier latch.

Moby Baby Wrap - Kangaroo Care

The Moby baby wrap allows you to kangaroo care your premature baby with some discretion. Health professionals prescribe kangaroo care for premature babies as a means to increase baby's weight and mother's milk supply, promote bonding and breastfeeding, regulate baby's temperature, and reduce colic and fussiness.

What we love best of all about the Moby baby wrap is that you can adjust the straps every time you put it on so it always fits perfectly as both your body and your premature baby change daily.

Because other baby carriers fit on your shoulders in the same spot, kangaroo care can quickly become painful when you are practicing it the majority of your waking (and sometimes sleeping) hours. If you are practicing kangaroo care you may want to purchase two Moby baby wraps so you can wash them frequently.

The Moby baby wrap can be used with any size preemie and will hold up to 45 pounds of weight as your baby thrives and grows.

Preemie Carseat - Hug Me Joey

The Hug Me Joey is a two part system that helps digestion and breathing by improving positioning in carseats, strollers or infant swings that are too large for your premature or newborn baby. The wedge fills the "well" of the seat, bringing your preemie up so they are not as squished. The roll goes around and over your baby's head to keep them from shifting to the side and to prevent the head from flopping sideways or forward.

Unlike rolled up towels, the Hug Me Joey has been approved by hospitals and thoroughly crash-tested. Decrease spit ups and apnea episodes in the car - the one place you can't do anything about them.

Ookie Security Blanket Doll - Ookie Doll

Baby's first doll - scented like you! A charming European tradition, these 100% cotton flannel dolls are held on your skin for several hours or overnight and then placed in baby's isolette, crib, or carseat anytime you can't be there. The edges are trimmed with super soft satin and corners are knotted for chewing.

These are beautifully sewn and perfect for enbroidery, making them a thoughtful gift. Machine washable.

Feeding Journal

This clever journal keeps track of pumping sessions, nursing or bottle feeding. Helps any sleep-deprived caregiver remember details that seem to blend together. This is a great way for the nursing staff to commmunicate to you how much your premature baby has been fed, or for you to keep track of pumping sessions.

Once baby starts solids there are sections to track foods offered, likes or dislikes or adverse physical reactions to things your preemie ate.
