Pre-term babies suffer from heat loss when they come in contact to a unstable, unprotected environment .
When the babies have to regulate their own heat, this costs a lot of energy, which is unhealthy and sometimes life-threatening for an premature baby.
With Howly, we wanted to provide a safe environment that avoids this scenario. Howly, this is a wrap blanket that provides medical support for the heat regulation for premature babies in hospitals (neonatal care) with a focus on comfort, ease of use and safety while it stimulates skin to skin contact with the parents.
