Creature comforts for premature babies

These lovingly crocheted octopuses are now giving comfort to premature babies on the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at the Rosie Hospital. Research has proven the tentacles of a crocheted octopus remind babies of the umbilical cord and being in their mother’s womb, making them feel safe.
Thank you to all those people who crochet and knit so every premature baby can enjoy the benefits.
