Hi everyone! So, we all pretty much know that Kangaroo Care involves the parents holding their premature infant for as much as possible to promote growth and healing and positive outcomes and all of that awesomeness, right? I have, however, recently heard of someone who claims to be doing this type of care *ahem* at the request of the parents (allegedly -- there are reasons why this may be in terms of this person regarding themselves as a "healer" in a holistic sense -- in other words, there may be some misrepresentation of themselves professionally).Am I losing it? Isn't Kangaroo Care particularly geared toward parent involvement (seeing as how the parents benefit as well)? This person does not refer to it as Kangaroo Care but rather "skin time" and something about that just seems off to me. I don't recall ever hearing that Kangaroo Care, or "skin time" (which sounds.....bizarre), as being part of a nursing intervention that nursing staff actually does themselves. I looked it up and still can't find anything in relation to straight up skin-to-skin contact having anything to do with anyone other than the parent/guardian. Any assistance in understanding why such a situation would occur and be appropriate would be appreciated!
